Microsoft announces Comedy Central and Nickelodeon for Xbox

Comedy Central

Staring at your Xbox 360 dashboard thinking about what to do next? If you reside in the US, you'll be able to enjoy two TV brands on the console: Comedy Central and Nickelodeon. Xbox Live Gold subscribers can enjoy stand-up comedy and the top shows on Comedy Central and more than 6,000 videos of the funniest comedians are available. But what if you have children who want to enjoy media on the Xbox? This is where Nickelodeon comes into play.


Transforming the Xbox 360 console into a kid-friendly home of entertainment, children (and parents) will be able to enjoy top Nickelodeon shows and characters. Again, should you have a Gold subscription, full episodes, humorous videos and animated shorts from stars are just a selection away. The Nick app brings the likes of SpongeBob, Sam and Cat and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the Xbox.

Head on over to the Xbox Wire for all the details and requirements.

Microsoft announces Comedy Central and Nickelodeon for Xbox


Well that's pretty stupid considering that majority of people watch CC for South Park. If there was no South Park, there would be no Comedy Central.

Yes, its their biggest and most profitable show. It's also the reason why Comedy Central is a premium channel.

South park is the only thing I don't watch on cc.

Not that I dislike it, it's just that I've grown out of it.

Ugh requires gold. This stuff along with netflix should work with Silver accounts :/. Or better yet free gold accounts for all WP users, what an excellent idea to get marketshare!

Yeah.. It's kinda idiotic keeping apps behind a pay wall but then Microsoft can't justify charging Gold for Multiplayer gaming on Xbox console .. Lol :P

I wish we could pay per channel every month (a la carte). Xbox: you want HBO? That will be $10/month. You want Versus? $10. The outdoor channel (hunting stuff) $10/month. That would be awesome.

Oh we can dream. The current system is ideal because tends to mask supply and demand pretty well. Not ideal for the consumer, of course.

Then cable providers would lose millions because lets be honest.... Who watches all 800 channels in their line up? I want 10 at most.

Wait! So I can get all current aired and past shows on my Xbox? All that's needed is Xbox live gold? Or do I need to have a cable subscription first to be able to take advantage of this?
