Live streaming website Twitch.tv becomes the next app for Xbox Live and offers up its grand assortment of live gaming content.
You’ve just ordered pizza through the Xbox 360’s Pizza Hut app and now you need some quality entertainment. How about watching your Bro from across the country riding dragons and blowing up cyborgs through neon-colored skies in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon?
Well, starting now Xbox Live Gold subscribers (sorry there Silver users) can download the Twitch.tv app to gain access to one of best live steaming websites for videogames – home to popular channels like Major League Gaming – viewable through the Xbox 360’s dashboard.
The Twitch.tv app will allow users to see 300 of the most popular live streams from the website, including featured curated channels (MLG as I’ve already described), popular gaming tournaments from around the world, and live broadcasting shows happening 24/7.

Microsoft’s partnership with Twitch.tv doesn’t stop there either, because after next Tuesday’s reveal of the next Xbox (that’s May 21), Direct of Programming for Xbox Live, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, will host an exclusive follow-up show dedicated to Microsoft’s latest console.
And we here at Walyou will bring you the skinny about the next Xbox, so stayed tuned for that and other geeky news like Commander Chris Hadfield performing his version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity from actual Space and a self-made replica of the plasma cutter from Dead Space.
