How to Stream Live TV to Xbox 360

The Xbox 360 is lauded as a great multimedia powerhouse, which can not only play video games, but also be used for many other multimedia services. Over the time, many people at Microsoft and at other organisations have developed a number of software to tinker the ability of the device in a positive way. However, streaming TV channels was something that was yet to be done on the Xbox 360. Microsoft has not launched any program, so far. However, you can still stream TV channels on your Xbox 360, as many websites have now started tweaking minimally to stream TV on the device.
