    As Google struggles to deliver another version of Google TV, Microsoft is looking to turn their Xbox offering into more of a home entertainment hub with voice commands that instantly delivers content.

    Gone will be remote controls, instead users will utter a voice command and the new Xbox entertainment hub will deliver content, a Microsoft spokesperson said.
    The software company who recently cut a deal with Foxtel to deliver TV content to an Xbox is believed to be working on an entertainment hub that in Australia will deliver BigPond TV and content from TV stations as well as Hula who are currently setting up an Australian operation.
