TV and video services dominate the initial Australian line-up of apps for the Xbox One.
Microsoft has confirmed the local apps are Network Ten’s tenplay, SBS ON DEMAND and Quickflix while global apps TED, MUZU TV, Twitch, Crackle and Machinima will also be available in Australia.
Microsoft is referring to the above apps as the “first wave”, that is they are not all necessarily available at launch but will be available “between November 22 and Autumn 2014”.
Network Ten’s tenplay app is confirmed for November 22, according to Ten’s chief digital officer, Rebekah Horne.
We have asked Microsoft to clarify when the rest of the first wave apps will be available in Australia.
UPDATE: Microsoft has also announced the “first wave” of Xbox One apps for New Zealand. They are Machinima, MUZU TV, Quickflix, TED and Twitch.
