SYFY Now and USA Now heads to Xbox One
Two new apps are headed to the Xbox One from NBCUniversal’s TV Everywhere group, the company announced today that USA Now and Syfy Now will be available on the Xbox One from Microsoft.
“Part of the goal of NBCUniversal’s TV Everywhere initiative is to give consumers the opportunity to discover our content on a wide array of platforms,” said Alison Moore, EVP and GM of TV Everywhere. “Connected devices like Xbox One provide new ways for USA and Syfy fans to access the content they love in a whole new way.”
On Xbox One, viewers will be able to see USA’s and Syfy’s current schedule of shows, as well as episodes from recently aired hit series. On USA Now, viewers can watch full seasons, current episodes and select episodes of some of USA Network’s popular shows, including the latest episodes of USA’s sizzling summer dramas “Suits,” “Graceland,” “Covert Affairs,” “Royal Pains,” and the network’s newest original series, “Rush” and “Satisfaction.” Xbox One owners using USA Now can also catch-up on the full first seasons of the highly buzzed about reality series “Chrisley Knows Best” and comedy “Playing House,” and five rolling episodes of hit shows like “Burn Notice,” “White Collar,” and “Psych.”
Full seasons and select episodes of critically-acclaimed, fan favorite scripted shows currently available on Syfy Now include “Defiance,” “Dominion,” “Helix,” “Haven,” “Being Human,” and “Warehouse 13.” The much-anticipated “Sharknado 2: The Second One” will also be available for viewing alongside full seasons and rolling episodes of popular unscripted series like “Face Off,” “The Wil Wheaton Project,” “Paranormal Witness,” and “Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge.” Original digital content from BlastrTV is also featured on Syfy Now on Xbox One.
“The launch of Syfy Now and USA Now TV Everywhere apps adds a range of new TV shows and movies to Xbox One, including hit TV series, movies, behind-the-scenes video, original digital content and more,” said Mike Nichols, Corporate Vice President, Xbox. “Our goal is to help our customers have more fun, and we are excited to offer them an ever-expanding range of quality gaming and entertainment experiences with partners like NBCUniversal.”
