Fox shows, WSJ content to be made available via Xbox 360 app

Fans of Fox's broadcast and Fox News content will soon have a new way of consuming the programming. News Corp. has announced it plans on making some of its television content available through a new app on Xbox 360. The apps are slated to be available to Xbox gold members starting in 2012, though a specific launch date hasn't yet been set. The arrangement will allow Xbox users to access shows like Family GuyGlee and The O'Reilly Factor using credentials from their cable or satellite subscriptions to log on. The new partnership will also allow users to access news content from the News Corp.-owned Wall Street Journal.
