Fox Puts Family Guy On Xbox

Publish date:

Starting Sept. 2, Fox will make episodes of its irreverent hit animated comedy Xbox available for purchase and download via Microsoft's Xbox 360 game system.

Fox sees the fit as a natural since Family Guy was last season's top network series with the 18-34 male gaming demo, according to the network.

The Xbox has been increasingly moonlighting as a general entertainment system, with more than 2,800 hours of content available  on teh Xbox Live service from CBS, Comedy Central, A&E, Turner, and others.

Family Guy has been one of Fox's consistent Sunday night summer performers, popular with the 18-49 demo in general as well as the game-friendly young guys.
