GoPro app hits Xbox One on Xbox Live
Extreme sports enthusiasts, amateur stuntman and other adrenaline-junkies can now checkout four exclusive videos that were released on to the Xbox community to mark the launch of its GoPro Channel for the Xbox One. The new app allows Xbox Live members to stream GoPro content on-demand, share favorite videos, and purchase GoPro cameras and accessories.
“Xbox 360 users have welcomed GoPro into their community with enthusiasm, and we expect the launch of the GoPro Channel on Xbox One to take that engagement to the next level,” said Adam Dornbusch, Head of Contest Distribution at GoPro. “The Xbox platform is a best in class over-the-top media platform and users are making the most of that by tuning into the GoPro Channel and watching it like they would a TV. We anticipate that trend to continue and grow among the Xbox One audience.”
The announcement of the GoPro Channel for Xbox One comes just in time for people to demo the app at Comic-Con International this week in San Diego. Xbox Lounge attendees can view teaser clips of exclusive content, watch a robust playlist of other GoPro-produced and user-generated videos and learn about new favorite and share features.
“Bringing the GoPro Channel to Xbox One has been a top demand from fans this year,” said Larry Hryb, Xbox Live’s Major Nelson. “GoPro athletes and fans alike can curate their favorite videos on their big screens right next to their favorite Xbox One games, and it’s super easy to switch between the two. I love that you can also buy GoPro cameras and gear right from the app!”
