While we were at Build, we took advantage of a nice demo booth setup by Identity Mine, a Premier Plus partner in the Xbox app development program, to run through a demo of our Xbox One app for Channel 9. Identity Mine worked with our development team to add a Smartglass companion app to the Xbox One app that the in-house Channel 9 team (well, mostly Cara... with some API and services support from Sampy) created.

Sharing a lot of the underlying data access with our Windows 8 app, we set out to make a cool app that would allow you to easily watch Channel 9 on your TV. The companion app that Identity Mine created makes it even better, as you'll see in this video.

    Very cool, can't wait to have Channel9 on Xbox. Also very excited to make Xbox One apps, hope they open it up soon. Getting very impatient haha.

  • Super cool. Looking forward to getting this installed on my Xbox One. Loving the Smartglass stuff too, really showing off the possibilities of what can be done when a tablet/phone is "paired" with an Xbox.

     

     

  • Looks like I will definitely be watching Build 2015 on the big screen next year! :)

    So need this now!

  • If this has playback speed control, it will give Titanfall a run for it's money. Super!

    Yes!!!! Can't wait for it. Taking any beta testers?

  • Duncan MackenzieDuncanma "yeah that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by"

    @littleguru: I have no idea how a beta process would work with the Xbox platform, but I'll keep it in mind as we move through certifications.

    So when is this coming to XBox One then?

  • whatwhat

    I dont understand why you are all thinking this is such an innovation. It's not.

    Wow, you can watch a video on your TV controlled by smartglass.

    We can already send to a big TV without having to put on the xbone. If someone is serious that wants to do two or three things at a time they will have more than one monitor. Like me, I have three!

    This isn't innovation at all. This is a half arsed sync up.

  • If Microsoft wants to compete with Apple and Google they need to provide a device that is much cheaper than $500 to interface with a TV, ChromeCast and Apple TV are sub $100 devices and that is what I'd like to develop against.  If you step back and look at what Apple has with Apple TV all of their devices (desktop, laptop, tablet, and phone) can send the screen directly to it.  In addition there are apps on the Apple TV for audio / video. 

    I get that Smart glass is trying to provide additional information about what is shown on the TV but there is a bigger market for the area that Apple TV and ChromeCast address, an area that Microsoft doesn't address at all because WiDi / Miracast basically has the PTV-3000 from Netgear and the only thing it does is stream your screen, there aren't any apps on it and it costs more than ChromeCast and is about the same cost as Apple TV.

    As of Windows 8.1, we support Miracast to add wireless displays to your devices. Miracast is a standard supported by the Wi-Fi alliance.  Newer televisions are coming out built in with the standard, but for now you can pick up an adapter much like the ones you list above well below the $100 mark.

  • I have read your article.thanks for giving us a important information.I hope you will continue your posting of article.

  • Hey guys, any suggestion of when this Channel9 Xbox app will be here? Not looking for anything too concrete, just something like next month, 3 months, next year? Yeah, I know I can get it on the Xbox via IE, but a Channel9 app like the Windows 8 app would be so much nicer.
