Major League Gaming comes to Xbox 360
As you may have seen yesterday, the Major League Gaming (MLG) app launched on Xbox 360. With the MLG app, Xbox Live Gold members in Australia, Canada, the U.K. and the U.S. can watch all of MLG.tv’s programming including the best gamers competing in MLG’s premier competitions from the comfort of their living room. Now, gamers and enthusiasts can watch live broadcasts of gaming tournaments and professionally produced gaming content through a console app created for the big screen.
Don’t miss a beat of the upcoming “Call of Duty” Championship with MLG on Xbox 360. The tournament will feature 31 of the best “Call of Duty” teams from around the globe competing for $1 million in prizes and the title of “World Champions” from March 28-30. Since January, teams worldwide have battled head-to-head in regional qualifying events to secure a spot at the “Call of Duty” Championship in Los Angeles.
You can watch the full tournament with MLG on Xbox 360 by downloading the app today and tuning in starting March 28 at 9 a.m. PDT! And for a limited time, there will be an opportunity to watch the “Call of Duty” Championship on Xbox One, too, brought to you by our friends at MLG. We’re also thrilled to announce that a full MLG app will be coming to Xbox One later this year, but more details on that later.
