New Apps coming to XBOX starting with SkyDrive

 

Today Major Nelson announced a list of 40 new apps coming to XBOX 360 before Spring 2013! Because I live in the Netherlands not all Apps will become available here. Please check out the blog post at MajorNelson.com for the entire list

For some of the Apps it’s not sure if they will be available in the Netherlands, but the following Apps certainly will appear on a Dutch Xbox near you:

  • RTL XL (already available)
    watch missed RTL (4, 5, 7, 8) programs
  • SkyDrive (available on December 11th)
    SkyDrive is the place to store your files so you can access them from virtually any device. With SkyDrive for Xbox, you can easily view your photos and videos on your TV. You can also play slideshows and view photos and videos shared with you. For more information, visit the Inside SkyDrive blog
  • Karaoke (available on December 11th)
    Karaoke provides access to more than 8,000 songs from the latest hits to the oldies but goodies, available on Xbox LIVE. Your avatar will go on stage and sing with a full complement of stage props and back band. Use SmartGlass to play/stop/pause, browse the database and lyrics or to add songs to the playlist. Songs don’t require any download and will playback immediately via streaming for a robust karaoke experience.
  • Eredivisie Live
    watch live soccer games from the Dutch soccer league
  • LiveSport.tv (not available yet?)
    watch sports
  • Pathe Thuis
    watch/rent movies
  • SBS
    you can probably watch missed SBS (6 / Net 5 / Veronica) programs, but there is no info about the app yet
  • Ziggo
    watch live tv with your Ziggo subscription, just like the iOS and Android App. In the near future Video on Demand will be added to the App. The Ziggo Company Twitter account told me that recording live tv will also become available in a later stadium.
