"Direct TV and Microsoft announced plans to bring digital TV to the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system.
Direct TV announced plans to make their digital television available on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, as well as on PCs running windows.

With support for the Apple iPod and other portable sound devices, HDTV support, and oh yeah, it can play videogames too, the Xbox360 is really jumping ahead as a simplified media center in and of itself." [link]
