Sling TV Launches Today Exclusively on Xbox One; Xbox Members Get Exclusive One Month Free Trial

In January, we announced that Sling TV, the new live TV service, would be making its way to Xbox One. Today, we’re proud to announce that Xbox One is the first gaming console for which the over-the-top television service is available, and the best part is that only our members get an exclusive extended free trial for 30 days.

Sling TV on Xbox One offers the same great features our fans have come to expect, including the ability to Snap while enjoying other activities, Pin the app to your Home and use voice or gesture controls with Kinect for Xbox One. Check out the walk-through video above for a deeper look into how it all works on Xbox One.

We got a chance to sit down with Sling TV CEO Roger Lynch to learn more about the new service and what it means to bring Sling TV exclusively to Xbox One as the first gaming console. Read the full interview at Xbox Wire.

Xbox App on Windows 10 – March 2015 Feature Summary

It was a busy week last week, with new tools releasing to Windows 10 developers at GDC to enable them to build great games for both Xbox and Windows. We’re eager to share that more features are coming to the Xbox app on Windows 10 as part of our monthly effort to deliver new functionality to the Xbox app. Today, we are adding the following features:

More ways to connect with your friends.

  • Activity Feed – Like comments and delete your own activity feed posts.
  • User Profile – Profile headers will now be collapsed by default to show more profile information on the screen.
  • Friends Search – Use the search box at the top of the friends list to find an existing friend by gamertag or by real name if they are sharing it with you.

More control of your experience.

  • Improved Window Sizing – The Xbox app adapts to changing window sizing to more intelligently display different views dependent on the size of the application window.
  • Connect to your Xbox One – Remotely control your Xbox One from the Xbox app using a virtual game controller.
  • OneGuide and Universal Remote Control – Access OneGuide and the Universal Remote Control to change channels, manage volume or access the DVR on your set-top box connected to your Xbox One.
  • Games – See recently played Xbox Live games across devices – that includes Windows 10 devices, Windows Phone, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The Xbox app will automatically update to the March version when it becomes available in the Windows Store. Once you receive the update, your version number should be 3.3.3019.0 or higher.

Xbox One March System Update: Party Chat Improvements, Screenshots and More Now Available

This month’s system update on Xbox One brings you some of the most-requested features by our fans including screenshots and improved tile transparency. We heard great things from members of the  Xbox One preview program following their sneak preview and are excited to bring these great new features to everyone on Xbox One today.

Check out the list of features in the March system update that are starting to roll out tonight:

Screenshots – You can now take screenshots on your Xbox One console by simply double-tapping the Xbox button on your controller to capture a screenshot and pressing Y to save the screenshot. You can also say “Xbox, take a screenshot” to take and save a screenshot.

Upload app – You can manage your screenshots in addition to your game clips in the Upload app. To set a screenshot as your background, go to Upload, open the screenshot full screen, press the Menu button, and select Set as background. You can also use Upload to share screenshots to your activity feed, attach them to messages, add screenshots to your showcase, share to Twitter, and post to OneDrive.

Suggested friends – To find new friends, go to Friends and look for people under the Suggested friends heading or select the Suggested friends Or, if you don’t have a ton of friends yet, just check the Friends area of Home.

Sharing your name – Gamertags are still the primary method of identifying yourself on Xbox Live, but sharing your real name helps people recognize you who might not know you by your gamertag. The new name sharing options can be found under Friends > My profile > Name sharing settings.

Party chat enhancements – We added two new icons to party chat to show each participant their own microphone status. The Kinect icon means the Kinect is being used as the mic and the headset icon means the headset mic is being used.

Tile transparency – We’re adding a setting to vary the level of transparency for your background images. To do this, go to Settings > My Xbox > Tile transparency.

Voice search privacy – We added a new setting to share voice search data to allow anonymous collection and analysis of voice data when using Bing on Xbox to search. Go to Settings > Privacy and online safety > Custom > Share voice search data to change the setting.

Report spam – The Messages app has an added option to notify Xbox when you receive spam. To report a message as spam, select it, press A on the controller, select Report, and then choose Spam.

Live TV & OneGuide in Australia – Support for OneGuide is now available to all users in Australia for free-to-air TV listings. Additionally, the OneGuide app will be pre-pinned for users in Australia a few days after the March system update goes live.

Xbox One Digital TV Tuner in Australia – Xbox One owners in Australia can pre-purchase the Xbox Digital TV Tuner at the online Microsoft Store, Availability of the tuner is planned for March 25, 2015.

More system updates with cool new features are coming your way soon, so stay tuned for more details. Keep sending us your feedback!
