Major League Gaming app released for Xbox One

Just ahead of the MLG Championship in Anaheim, California

The official Major League Gaming app has been released for Xbox One, Microsoft has confirmed.

The app allows Xbox Live users to watch MLG events live and other content streamed directly to their console.


The app arrives just in time for the start of the latest MLG Championships, which take place in Anaheim, California, June 20-22.

Over 1000 gamers will be competing for a share of a total prize pool of $150,000, with heats in games including Call of Duty: Ghosts, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Microsoft introduced major policy changes in June that mean it will no longer require an Xbox Live Gold subscription for users to access Netflix and other entertainment apps.
