Here’s what app channels are available on Xbox One

Part of Xbox One’s marketing campaign revolves around the console being an entertainment center, but so far the ‘One’ hasn’t exactly been churning out app channel options. While the Xbox 360 lineup has grown to 66 channels, the Xbox One channels still only add up to 22. That’s only a third of the supported apps of its predecessor.

But the major streaming video channels are thankfully available including Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Redbox Instant by Verizon, and VUDU. More niche channels on Xbox One include Machinima, Twitch, TED talks, and Skype. And, several network apps are free to download such as ESPN on Xbox One, FOX NOW, FXNOW, MLB.tv, and Univision Deportes.

Coming soon to Xbox One is the Kinect-controlled MUZU.TV that provides new music videos, news and artist interviews.

What’s missing from Xbox One are popular entertainment apps such as A&E, CNET, EPIX, HBO Go (maybe it’ll launch for the next Game of Thrones series), History, NBC News, SyFy, and WSJ Live. We’ll also be waiting for gaming-focused apps including IGN, GameSpot TV, as well as sports channels NBA Game Time, and NHL GameCenter.

Stayed tuned and we’ll bring a comparison chart of both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One – so you’ll know what you’re missing and what you may have to look forward to in future app releases.

  1. I’m excited for the HBO Go App. It’s on the slate for 2014 and I need it for my GOT fix. I’d really like to see Xfinity from Comcast..if you release the app for phones and tablets with miniature screens they need to support the big screen as well. I know they have competing products but c’mon man! The more viewers the better.
