Xbox 360, which in October announced a slew of content deals via Xbox Live designed to make the console a one-stop set-top box to control everything entertainment from video games to music to film to TV, announced today that the first of those agreements will kick off tomorrow — along with some pretty cool bells and whistles. The biggest is a deal with sister Microsoft service Bing to offer voice-controlled search via Xbox’s Kinect, through which users can look for content on the service. The news comes just in time for the holidays, and existing Xbox owners get the upgrade for free. Here’s the list of content partners and their premiere dates, from Microsoft’s release today:

Xbox 360 is building on its expansive catalog of movies, sports, television and music available through Hulu Plus, Last.fm, Netflix, Zune music and video and ESPN®, as well as on its existing lineup of great TV providers, such as AT&T U-verse® TV in the U.S., TELUS in Canada, BSkyB in the U.K., CANAL+ in France, Vodafone Portugal, VimpelCom in Russia and FOXTEL in Australia, by also now rolling out the following new entertainment partners and apps**:
