(San Francisco, Ca.) Revision3, A Discovery Digital Video network, announced the launch of its app for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. As of today, Xbox LIVE Gold members in the U.S., Canada and Australia can install the new Revision3 app from the Xbox LIVE® marketplace*.
With the new Revision3 for Xbox LIVE app, fans of Revision3 content now have an additional platform for watching their favorite shows. Tens of thousands of Revision3 videos, from Revision3's 30+ unique shows, including Tekzilla, Rev3Games, Destructoid, Scam School, Film Riot, and more, are now viewable on Xbox 360.
Xbox users can now discover and watch Revision3 videos right on their Xbox 360. Even more, the new Revision3 for Xbox LIVE app gives the company's millions of passionate fans an exciting new way to share and enjoy their favorite shows in full HD. Designed from the ground up, Revision3's new application fits seamlessly into the design aesthetic of the Xbox dashboard, and lets viewers play their favorite episodes, discover new shows, and save episodes they love for later viewing. Viewers can even interact with the Revision3 app in all new ways by using voice and gesture controls with the innovative Kinect for Xbox 360 sensor*.
"Over the past few years, Revision3's viewers have migrated from laptop web viewing to a big-screen TV experience", said Rob DeMillo, Chief Technology Officer, Revision3. "With more than 76 million Xbox 360 consoles in people's homes, it made perfect sense for Revision3 to work with Microsoft to bring our great lineup of shows to Xbox 360, a device that has quickly become so much more than just a gaming platform".
Revision3 began 8 years ago with the idea that informative, thought provoking information and entertainment doesn't have to be constrained by someone else's television schedule. Over the years, Revision3's viewers have rapidly expanded their desire to watch their favorite shows on whatever screen best suits their mood: on their television, tablet, game station, phone, or a traditional laptop - and the company has been at the forefront of this rapidly changing landscape.
In addition to the new Xbox LIVE application, Revision3 is releasing a revamped and redesigned web experience at Revision3.com. The new website features a variety of user-friendly and interactive technologies, including single sign on, HTML5 HLS streaming, and redesigned network, show and episode pages. Designed in large part by its fans, the site's sleek and modern look showcases an innovative and unified user experience. Additional updates to Revision3's other popular viewing platforms, including iOS and Android, will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
*Xbox LIVE Gold subscription and/or additional subscriptions/fees may be required and sold separately. Kinect functionality available with select Xbox LIVE content and varies by feature and country. For additional details and availability, see http://www.xbox.com/live
