Can't believe they are launching without iPlayer, Sky or YouTube :no: Also have to wonder if Sky will bother with a seperate app or will integrate the basic packages into NowTV more.

 

Oh well, at least there's Netflix and Twitch :/

I don't know about Sky and iPlayer but Youtube isn't on any new system for some reason or another.

Yes, they're all behind gold. I imagine they'll all be out at launch, considering most are already on the 360.

Well I'm actually alright with a lack of youtube app at launch as long as IE can handle the web page properly.  The 360 IE was fairly limited, but the X1 is probably using a form of IE 11, so I'm hoping that means its much more capable.

 

If they allow you to pin websites to your pin sections, I could see myself using that a lot.

 

As far as the app lineup, its a good first start, but they will keep building on that for sure.  And again they missed an opportunity to move these apps outside of Gold, but they must feel that they do not yet offer enough other services behind Gold to offset moving those to an open app market. 

 

I'll be using the Amazon and ESPN apps a lot.  I really liked the ESPN app on the 360, so I'll keep that going with the x1. I've been trying out Xbox Music, so I may be using that on there as well.  But as much as I appreciate all the streaming app support, I'm still waiting to hear about how MS will handle 3rd party apps developed for the X1.  I want an app that can handle local media playback, including content streamed from another device.

One slick thing I read about was the fact that the One Guide can be used by any 3rd party app.  Things like Netflix and Hulu Plus can push their content to the guide.

 

It shows up as its own channel in the guide and you can navigate through with all of the Kinect features they demoed or the controller.

 

That's great news for potential app developers and it makes the guide so much more useful beyond just live tv. 

 

This is one reason I'm looking forward to the X1 so much, its potential as an app platform considering its robust OS.

I imagine the whole media apps behind Gold thing could change at any time with growing competition from others.   There's also new people in charge so anything is possible down the road.  As they start to add things back that they had set first, like family sharing an so on, they can add value to gold through those and set media apps free.   Right now outside of having gold for MP it's also to get access to the apps.    It could all swing the other way at any point, it'd just be a easy server side change for them to unlock like they do on those free weekends from time to time.

I don't think youtube would be Microsofts fault. I'm guessing more to do with google the same with WP youtube app and the constant back and forwards ###### fight between the two.

Yeah, it looks like there will be a steady stream of new entertainment sources as we go along.

I'm cool with a delay as long as they take the time to build a proper UI for the TV and take advantage of all the features.

Sigh, stuck with Netflix and Twitch then...

 

FWIW on the topic of NowTV, I actually think they're the best streaming service in the UK and very underrated. The library is updated every week with new releases way ahead of the competition. I was surprised when I first joined. I wanted to hate it because it's part of the evil empire, but it's too good (Y)

Here is a short teaser for the ESPN app for all you sports fans out there:

I don't use many apps, but I used the heck out of the epsn app on the 360 and this one looks good so far, so that should continue.
