The U.S. is a mighty nation that gave the world many great inventions, including a leading role in the development of the internet, the light bulb, and of course, Windows! America has also landed humans on the moon, and continues to explore the frontiers of science with their Mars rovers, Tokamak fusion energy, and world-leading super computers. What a magical nation.

However, America's greatest contribution to civilization as we all know are twofold: Xbox, and reality TV. Thanks to new app Hayu, a singularity of pure innovation has resulted in an all-new app subscription service, giving you access to a bounty of reality TV goodness for just $6 per month. What a time to be alive.

In a press release earlier today, Hayu revealed that Xbox is its first console partnership, with a huge amount of availability. Reality TV fans in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK get access to the service initially, with more on the way later.

Hayu has a large spread of the most wholesome and the least wholesome reality TV on the market, with categories ranging from cooking shows to true crime, celebrity lifestyle shows to home and design, there are also mountains of dating shows both from the U.S. and UK, including famous series like Keeping up with the Kardashians, and The Real Housewives.

It brings a tear to my eye knowing how hard Xbox is working to deliver for fans. Great games are one thing, the world's best gaming subscription service in the form of Xbox Game Pass is another. Microsoft also gives us industry-leading hardware with the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Although, I'd argue that bringing us Hayu is the single greatest contribution Xbox has given us so far. God bless you Microsoft.
