IGN and Nerdist apps make their debut on the Xbox One

Two more media streaming apps are now available for owners of Microsoft's Xbox One console. One features content from the gaming-themed IGN website, while the other contains videos and podcasts from the Nerdist Network.

Here's what you can expect from the new IGN app:

"The IGN for Xbox app turns all of our video games news and reviews into an interactive TV channel. Launch the app and the latest news from the IGN home page is automatically piped to your TV screen, with simple functions for finding and queuing videos. You can sit back and relax with IGN, or dive deep for the specific content you want. It's Internet video made for your television, the way we want to use TV."In addition to IGN's in-depth games coverage of everything Xbox and beyond, the app offers reviews and trailers for movies, and all other content you expect from IGN. All app functions are supported in both Full and Snap modes on Xbox One, so you can watch IGN while playing your favorite games."

The new Nerdist app is also available on the Xbox 360 console as well. Here's what you get:

Now you can catch all of our regularly scheduled greats like Nerdist News, The Dan Cave, Because Science, and Nerdist Presents right from your Xbox console. The app also features classics like All Star Celebrity Bowling, Grammar Slam, and Cops: Skyrim, too. Oh, and did I mention that one show with the super clever, dashingly handsome, and highly charismatic black dude, Nerdist: Play? Yeah, you can find that incredibly attractive gentleman on our Xbox app as well. Here's another fun fact: you can catch archived versions of the Nerdist Podcast on the app as well. That means you can fire up your Xbox console and let the sultry voices of Chris Hardwick, Matt Mira, and Jonah Ray play directly through your home entertainment system. How smexy is that?
