Foxtel On Xbox 360 Adds Kinect Voice And Gestures

If you're a subscriber to the Foxtel app on Xbox 360, you might have noticed that basic Kinect voice controls don't work so well. An update due to roll out today should fix that, making Foxtel fully Kinect compliant.

You should be prompted for an update -- I've not yet switched on my own 360 to confirm this -- and sign back into Foxtel on Xbox 360 in order to get Kinect up and running.

The update also changes how parental permissions on the app work. Where previously you had to manage these via the Foxtel website -- a clumsy solution, given there's no inbuilt 360 browser -- the permissions should now be based within the application itself.
