Internet Explorer Coming to your TV?

Posted: May 10, 2012 in Microsoft, xbox

So is Microsoft going to add Internet Explorer for the Xbox 360?

Well, I’m not sure, but some aspects of adding IE to the Xbox for TV internet searches and browsing sounds promising.

Would I use it all the time? Nope, I actually don’t know what I would use it for, but people have wanted internet on their TV for as long as I can remember – is now the time and is MS the company to bring the illusive internet to your TV?

I think it is.

MS has a large user base of Xbox 360 users across the globe, more than the Wii and PS3 and more than Apple TV and Google TV.

Will MS release IE 9 along with Flash and Adobe Reader? That I doubt.

My bet would be that MS releases IE 10 that they use in Windows 8 Metro, Win RT and Windows Phone.

Its only logical since many of these platforms have similar limitations, eg screen resolution, performance and the fact that none of these are controlled via a mouse – fingers, features etc.
