Microsoft Live Video Player

Watch tomorrow’s Xbox Next announcement with the official Live Video Player app for Windows Phone 8

Good old Microsoft has released an official Live Event app for Windows Phone 8 devices that will allow users to stream tomorrow’s live NEXT Xbox announcement to their devices.

Microsoft has previously has such an app for their Xbox 360 console, allowing users at home to watch on their big’ol TVs but they didn’t have anything available for their Windows Phone lineup. Now, they seemed to have rectified that with the official Live Video Player app.

Of course we have no idea how well it will work but we’re quite excited that those of you on-the-go tomorrow will be able to stream the major event to your Windows Phone 8 device.

If you still can’t watch the live event tomorrow, tune into Windows Phone Central as we’ll be doing a live blog and coverage throughout the day, so just check your app!

Pick up Microsoft’s Live Video Player here in the Store. Windows Phone 8 only. Thanks, Jay, for the heads up!

Ahh give it a rest already, what's done is done.
Moaning about it isn't going to change anything #dealwithit

Unfortunate but I don't think WP8 would be getting all the hero apps as of late without the move away from WP7. Gotta cut of the gangrene leg to save the body...

^this plus I'm sure there are more wp8 users than wp7 so 50% isn't even close to correct prolly more like 20-30%

You guys are retarded.  I wasn't moaning, just pointing out that it is not stellar "support for an ecosystem" when you cut out 50% of your user base.  In fact, I don't give a rat's ass about the new Xbox let alone an app to watch the big reveal.  And to the moron that thinks it's "prolly more like 20-30%" left of WP7 you are most definitely wrong.  I wasn't guessing with that 50% figure.  It was reported here just a few days ago.
I guess WP has finally hit the masses when the majority of the people posting on here are stupid.  Hooray?

A. You're actually right (three months ago)
B. No one is retarded just for having a different opinion, I personally have owned L800, switched for WP8 L920 when it came out.
C. It was long known that this was going to happen, who buys stuff without research only to complain? :)

Let the game console wars start again! XD Personnaly on the fence between building a gaming machine and buying an Xbox. Don't see Sony close to MS just because at this stage the ecosystem plays a major role in buying choice.

Don't buy a console.. Since they use DirectX they'll be porting from the PC to the consoles so what's the point when we will get almost everything?

Not for me. Exclusives are what really matter. This gen I preferred the PS3 ones by far. There was a lot more variety and a clear bet on innovative games like Heavy Rain, Journey, Beyond, etc. that's the decisive factor for me.

No reason why it shouldn't, the Xbox app is used for all their live streams so the WP app should be compatible. Otherwise seems a bit odd to create the app just for this event.

I don't doubt it's gonna be used for other Xbox related events. But I'd like to see it being used for ANY Microsoft event. ;)

I remember watching the Build conference last year on my WP just through the browser so that's always an option. But I guess it would be possible with this app because the app description just says "watch live video broadcast". ;)

The E3 conference is coming up in 3 weeks so hold onto this app. They will be using it I'm sure.

I was figuring out how to time my working "lunch" to coinside with the live stream. Might just use the phone app instead of work laptop now :)

The eternal gamer in me is always excited for these moments. Even if I don't ever see myself buying the console in question. I'm fine with my 360 (amongst other). Games still look great on it and there are still a ton of great games I have yet to play.

Ok Microsoft, nice app. Next time it would be killer if you could tell the user what time the event is on in his region (we don't all live in America) and even add a reminder in our calendars. Just my $0.02

Major Nelson , Xbox team is constantly tweeting about the time in different counries ..
There was a time zone posted on Major Nelson's blog too
I don't know what more do u want from Microsoft , Send u emails ??

Damn, and I'm currently limited to 500mb/pm for now until next month when my rolling contract ends. Hope I'll get home in time!

Nice! May use this instead of watching on my XBox since my phone has more bandwidth than my DSL connection.

I'll be at work. Here's hoping they have a replay available to watch.... And that my gf doesnt mind watching it! (one tv lol)
