Microsoft hopes its first wave of original TV programming for Xbox One will be out in early 2014, the company's president of entertainment and digital, Nancy Tellem tells Variety. At the latest, Redmond is hoping to have its original content out by the second quarter. She then went on to say that the hardware giant's TV initiative has taken a bit longer than expected and that the company is neither Netflix or Amazon, and that's made explaining to typical Hollywood gatekeepers where the platform sits in the grand scheme of things a unique situation. Her division is in the process of securing exclusives and trying to figure out whether the content is "best on Xbox or only on Xbox" when it comes to interactive functionality. Whether the first round of shows includes the previously-announced Spielberg-produced Halo series or something involving street soccer remains to be seen, but from the sounds of it, it won't be long until we find out.
