Xbox Is Recruiting Hollywood to Make the Next House of Cards

Apr 7 2014 - 1:45pm

Netflix hit the jackpot with original series like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black, and Xbox Entertainment Studios [1] will attempt to do the same with a slate of new programs headed by Hollywood celebs like Steven Spielberg [2], Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera [3], and Seth Green [4]. The shows will be streamed exclusively through Xbox Live [5] on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.

Microsoft has a handful of shows in the works:

The entertainment announcements don't stop there. New updates for GoPro and YouTube [10] on the Xbox platform are now available. The YouTube app [11] works with Game DVR to upload gameplay video directly to your channel, just like the Share button on the PS4's new DualShock controller. [12]

The newly launched GoPro Channel [13] has arrived on Xbox 360 and will come to Xbox One soon. Xbox users will be available to view two exclusive videos on their consoles a week before they're available anywhere else. Footage captured on the body-mounted HD action camera will now be available for viewing.
