Windows 8 App for Channel 9 now available
You’ve seen this app before in various forms (we had a version in the consumer preview for Windows 8, and a beta up on the forum for awhile), but the v1 release just hit the Windows store.
- Pin your favorite shows and keep up to date with Live Tiles
- Watch videos with your choice of Progressive or Smooth Streaming technology
- Snap our videos to the side and keep watching while doing other things
- Download our videos and watch them offline
- Search Channel 9 content or Share using the Windows 8 Charms
The app is focused on watching video (you won’t see the forums, or even text-only Coding 4 Fun articles in there at the moment), and includes all of our event sessions in addition to our regular videos.
On the roadmap
Our next step is focused on enabling authentication in the app, connecting you to your account on Channel 9, which would let us bring your queue into the app, video ratings, and more.
Looking forward to your feedback!
