Xbox One and Xbox 360 users no longer need an Xbox Live Gold membership to access Network Ten’s digital platform, tenplay or subscription service Foxtel Play.
Now available with any Xbox Live subscription, the tenplay platform – available on web, mobile, tablets and smart TVs – provides access to Network Ten’s catch-up video platform.
The announcement comes as part of a series of changes to Xbox Live to bring more value to customers.
The tenplay app gives Xbox One and Xbox 360 users access to TEN, ELEVEN and ONE shows on-demand, straight after they have appeared on television, as well as real-time viewing, with live streaming of news and sporting events.
Users can also earn exclusive artwork and badges by watching their favourite shows, watch programming at the same time as playing games or using other apps, and take advantage of the features offered by Xbox 360 to navigate the app with their voice or gestures via Kinect.
