Xbox Live Apps

Microsoft hit gamers with both barrels this morning when the company announced that starting in June, entertainment apps such as Netflix, HBO Go, and Twitch will no longer require a Xbox Live Gold subscription. Basically, anyone with a Xbox 360 or Xbox One can enjoy all the entertainment apps with no additional fee. This news comes bundled with the Kinect-less Xbox One arriving in June, as well as Games with Gold finally coming to the Xbox One console.

Xbox 360 has been a leader in delivering entertainment experiences for years, with over 170 global entertainment apps and experiences available today. We’re constantly adding new partners and experiences to the growing catalog on Xbox One. Coming in June, anyone with an Xbox will be able to access popular entertainment experiences – whether or not you have an Xbox Live Gold membership. This includes great gaming apps like Machinima, Twitch and Upload, popular video services like Netflix, Univision Deportes, GoPro, Red Bull TV and HBO GO, sports experiences like the NFL app for Xbox One, MLB.TV, NBA Game Time, NHL Game Center and more.*** Microsoft experiences including Internet Explorer, Skype, OneDrive and OneGuide will also be available to all Xbox customers.**** You can find a full list of apps and features that will be available below.
