If you want to see how this works with Kinect, you can see a demo of that from Comcast's Tom Blaxland over here.  I'm definitely seeing more value with the voice command capabilities than with the  hand-based gesture controlls. JB

Do you have any favorite commands yet? Sit? Fetch? Pause? Yes, fun to see Tom wave at the xBox. Speaking of Game of Thrones, I see there's a companion app on iTunes.

Actually, "fetch" would be pretty fitting, but a nice way to cut through and find something if you have a title in mind. Beats 37 button pushes to search for a VoD itle using a grid guide. JB

It would be nice to sort content by your channel subscriptions.  Today it doesnt always show you what channel a movie is being carried on, and if you dont subscribe to say Showtime, you cant watch it.  I would like to sort by the channels i am subscribed too.  I realize this takes away my incentive to sign up for more channels but it would make things easier when browsing through all of the content.
