Microsoft (MSFT: Quote) and France Telecom-Orange, a unit of France Telecom (FTE: Quote), reached an agreement to offer an intuitive and innovative new service to Orange TV customers in the spring of 2012: voice and motion-activated television control using Kinect's magical technology. On December 6, Microsoft and Orange inked a deal that allows for Orange TV broadcasts on the Xbox1 game console.
