Major League Gaming now has a dedicated streaming app on the Xbox 360 which allows users to live stream MLG events and go through “hours of content” directly from the console.
The app comes just in time since this weekend sees to the Call of Duty Championship going live on March 28. When it does, fans can simply head into the MLG app and live stream the matches. You’ll though require an Xbox Live Gold membership to access the app.
Major League Gaming launched its streaming platform in 2013 and Xbox 360 is the first console to be getting access to its shows. It’s unknown whether Microsoft had MLG agree to some sort of timed exclusivity deal. Other wise it’ll be interesting to see if Sony follows suit and brings their own version.
In a statement, MLG CEO and cofounder Sundance DiGiovanni said that MLG users have watched over 54 million hours of video content in 2013. He expects these numbers to “greatly increase” this year thanks to the dedicated Xbox 360 app.
“We continue to deliver content on Xbox that we know our audience craves and MLG’s premium programming was something we saw a high demand for,” Xbox marketing chief Yusuf Mehdi said. ”We are excited to bring the best in competitive gaming directly to our community with the addition of the MLG app on Xbox 360.”
The MLG app is available today on Xbox 360 in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia. You’ll need an Xbox Live Gold subscription ($60/year) to access the content.
