ABC News recently announced that it was releasing an app for the Xbox One. Officially debuting on Oscars weekend, the app “will offer immediate access to multiple simultaneous streams of live video as well as on-demand content, entertainment news, original programming and highlights from ABC News programs,” according to a press release. The app will feature different editions of news footage depending on the day and time—quicker stories in the morning, immersive stories in the evening, and themed news on weekends.
The app is supposed to take full advantage of the Snap feature of the Xbox One; upon its launch, it will be the first news app for the console. There is no word on whether other broadcast networks will follow suit.
