Last week a few new apps came to the Windows Store that you might have missed. They’re all related and come to us from media and entertainment company NBCUniversal. This is the mega company that powers and controls such networks in the United States like NBC News, CNBC, MSNB, The Weather Channel NBC Sports, Syfy, E!, USA Network, Telemundo and more. We already have NBC Sports on Windows 8, but now we get three new apps for Syfy, Telemundo and USA.
USA Network, commonly just called USA, is a cable channel here in the U.S. that offers original programming. With the Windows 8 app you can watch shows like Psych, Suits, and White Collar. Though you’ll need to login with the TV provider credentials. The app sadly doesn’t support multiple window sizes that other apps designed for Windows 8.1 do.

Want to get your fix of science fiction, drama, the supernatural and horror? Then you’re probably a fan of the Syfy channel. Syfy now allows you to watch shows like Ghost Hunter, Continuum, Being Human, Stranded and more. Like USA Now, there’s no Windows 8.1 features in this app. Unlike USA Now, you don’t need to log in with your TV provider credentials to watch some of the programs, though some shows will require that login.

Looking to get your fix of Telemundo novelas and shows? Then Telemundo Now is for you. Sadly no Windows 8.1 features, but you can get access to some shows without having your TV provider authentication. Full episodes are available to you for shows like Avenida Brasil, La Impostora, Santa Diablo and more.

Let us know what you think of the apps. We’re really bummed they’re missing out on some basic Windows 8.1 functionality that you can get in other apps from NBCUniversal like NBC Sports Live Extra.
Thanks for the tips everyone!
