I'm proud to announce the new release of the Giant Bomb Video Player for your Xbox One and Windows 10 devices, featuring:
- Live streams! Watch Unprofessional Fridays or Murder Island as it's happening!
- More video sorting options in the "Shows" tab
Get it here! Or find it by searching for "Giant Bomb Video Player" on your Xbox!
- All that hot, fresh, kid-tested Luchadeer-approved premium content if you're a subscriber!
- Playback position syncing between the site and the app!
- It's every Giant Bomb video. Did you want something else? Let me know!
But that's not all!
I'm excited to keep adding to this app based on what you guys want. Maybe you're an old GameSpotter who misses the GameSpot Ice site skin and you want a nice cool blue version of the app. Maybe that person doesn't exist, and I'm the only one who remembers GameSpot Ice. Who can say. But what I can say is that I'm not done with this thing! I'm super proud of this first release and am eagerly looking forward to what's coming up next!
