MLG App Now Available on Xbox One, Lets You Watch Live Video

App arrives just in time for you to watch this weekend's MLG Anaheim.

The previously announced Major League Gaming app is now available on Xbox One, letting users watch all sorts of eSports content, including live programming. The app's arrival on Xbox One comes just a day before MLG Anaheim kicks off this weekend in Southern California.

In addition to special live broadcasts, you can use the MLG app on Xbox One to watch other content, including MLG's original show the eSports Report. You don't need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to access the app, as Microsoft dropped the paid requirement for entertainment apps last month.

"MLG showcases the best in competitive gaming and we will continue to release new competitive content and introduce new streamers via the MLG.tv platform in the coming months," MLG CEO and co-founder Sundance DiGiovanni said in a statement on the Xbox Wire.

The MLG app for Xbox 360 launched in April.

Don't care. It's bad enough I have to listen to these try hard babies in public lobbies, I don't want to tune in to watch them.

Want to make people happy? Add HBOGO, GameTrailers, IGN and Gamespot...lol just kidding, no one wants GS. (The fact that I still frequent this site is a miracle.)

Awesome!  Oh wait, I thought they meant HBO GO.

Because this doesn't interest me even a little bit.

Awesome!  Too bad I'll be out of town this weekend, so I can't watch the Killer Instinct and Injustice Tournament.

Not bad. I sometimes like to see MLG tournament games and see how they play.

@Gravity_Slave I think HBOGO is already available, or it's really close. They announced a few apps 2 weeks a go. Vine, Twitter, this one, HBOGO, and 40 others...
