Microsoft is building a set-top TV box to compete with Apple TV and other smart TV accessories, reports The Verge.

Think of the so-called "Xbox TV" as a less-expensive, scaled-down Xbox. It'll focus on streaming video capabilities with services like Netflix and Hulu, and it's expected in 2013.

This sounds a lot like the plans we heard about for Microsoft to take over the living room, fusing an Xbox video-game console with a TV set-top box with the next-generation Xbox.

The Verge describes a scaled-down version of that high-end product which will mainly provide TV features, not a full gaming experience.
