Microsoft announces Comedy Central and Nickelodeon for Xbox

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.
