NBC News

The 10-year old Xbox 360 will be without one of its streaming media apps after December 15. Microsoft is sending messages to Xbox 360 owners informing them that the NBC News app will be removed from the console on that date.

The NBC News app first launched in August 2012 and offered users breaking news reports from the television network, along with clips from its various news programs on its main network along with its 24-hour cable news outlet MSNBC, which ironically began as a co-venture with Microsoft. The message about the removal of the NBC News app did not mention a reason for its shutdown.
