Media Capabilities of Xbox One Win an Emmy Award!

By   /   Jan 14, 2015

In the recent days, Xbox One has been making up for a lot of things that it was questioned for when the console was originally launched. They have brought in some new games and they have also offered discounts that resulted in a hike in their total sales.

Now, there is another thing that the fans of Microsoft can boast of: the console has won an Emmy Award for its media capabilities! A new post on the Xbox Wire has revealed the news:

This year’s ceremony featured some especially great news for Xbox One: Microsoft will receive an Emmy Award for Television Enhancement Devices, thanks to the Xbox One’s industry-leading television-on-demand and media center capabilities. Microsoft is in good company with the likes of fellow award recipients Apple, Roku, Sony, and TiVo – and we’re proud to be awarded this honor by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

The award was brought in at the 6th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards which was held as a part of the Consumer Electronics Show which at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The awards were presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

I think that the award is well deserved because of everything that the console offers. For instance it supports CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays, DLNA and MKV.

Not only that, it has a vast range of apps and channels that the users can enjoy. Here’s a rundown on the channels being offered in the United States:

Amazon Instant Video, CinemaNow, Comedy Central, Crackle, CW, ESPN, Fox Now, FX Now, GoPro Channel, Hulu Plus, Machinima, MLB.TV, Major League Gaming, MTV, NBA Game Time, Netflix, NHL Gamecenter Live, Starz Play, Syfy Now, TED, Univision Deportes, USA Now, Verizon FiOS, VH1, Vudu, the WWE Network, and YouTube. Meanwhile, UK-specific apps include 4OD, Blinkbox, Demand 5, Eurosport, Netflix, Now TV, TED, Twitch, Wuaki.tv.
