CNET, a leading consumer electronics news and reviews brand, announced Tuesday that its video programming is available now on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and will appear later this month on Samsung’s Smart TVs.
Xbox 360 and Samsung Smart TV customers can sit back and watch popular long-form programs from CNET such as Molly Wood’s “Always On,” Brian Cooley’s “On Cars” and Brian Tong’s “Apple Byte” on their big-screen TVs.
Viewers can also catch live-streamed tech events or learn about the latest gadgets through hands-on product reviews and comparative videos.
Additionally, CNET Video+, a complementary second-screen app for the Android, iOS and Xbox SmartGlass platforms, will let viewers interact with the video in real-time.
According to CNET, the licensing agreements with Microsoft and Samsung are at the heart of its strategy to bring its video programming into the digital living room.
“We’re programming for every possible screen – from the smartphone to the television – with video increasingly at the heart of everything we do,” said Mark Larkin, senior VP of CNET. “Platforms like the Xbox 360 and Samsung Smart TV allow us to extend the reach of our short- and long-form content and deliver a unique, engaging experience where users love to watch video.”
