Xbox LIVE’s Major Nelson today announced that Twitch is now available on the Xbox 360!
With the Twitch for Xbox LIVE app, Gold subscribers in the U.S. will have access to 300 of the most popular streams from the service. Users can view top channels by popularity or individual game and the dashboard features curated channels, tournaments and shows happening now.
The downside being that only the top 300 streams will be available, so smaller streams won’t be available at launch but we’re hoping to see some updates down the road, possibly on the next Xbox as a new app for a console about to be replaced doesn’t seem like a smart move
In addition to launching the app today on Xbox 360, Twitch will also host an exclusive broadcast following the May 21st #XboxRevealed event next week. I’ll moderate the broadcast live at 3p ET/12m PT live via the new Twitch app on Xbox 360 and also online at www.twitch.tv.
Check out the app today by downloading it from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and tune in next Tuesday for the live broadcast.
