Are you a gaming addict who misses the breaking news? Worry not. Microsoft has announced that NBC has released a news app on Xbox Live. This means that you can catch all the news while enjoying our favorite games.
The app is expected to bring clips of breaking news and features from NBC’s various shows including Meet the Press, Hardball, Dateline, Nightly News and the Rachel Maddow Show.
The NBC news app will join a host of popular content apps like Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO Go, YouTube, Amazon Instant video, and MLB.tv. In the beginning, the app will not show any full-length episodes. Nor will it show any live streaming video. That means, for the time being, the app will only contain clips from the NBC News shows.
From what we could gather, the app brings content in the grid-style of menus with Kinetic support. The app is now available on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
