Today is a big day for Halo fans: Master Chief makes his debut on the Xbox One with the worldwide release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. To prepare for countless hours of awesome Halo gaming on your Xbox One – you can immerse yourself in the Halo Universe by downloading The Halo Channel (free) from the Windows Store.
The Halo Channel is an all-new interactive digital network that provides unprecedented, personalized access to the Halo Universe. You can seamlessly transition between game and other Halo experiences including some pretty awesome originally program like Halo 4: Forward unto Dawn and Halo: Nightfall. There is tons of community content as well and you can use The Halo Channel to build deep knowledge around Halo using the Halo Encyclopedia (I still need to learn a lot of the naming conventions myself – “purple flying machine” doesn’t sound quite right).
The Halo Channel also features full Twitch integration so you can broadcast your gameplay or watch feeds from the Halo community – from competitive multiplayer matches and campaign walkthroughs to speed runs.
Here is the full rundown of features:
- Live and Timely Content: Original programming and entertainment, timely Halo news and live events, eSports, and Twitch integration will keep content fresh and relevant.
- Interactive and Sharable: Interact with a personalized viewing experience, social sharing, and a best-in-class video platform.
- Rewarding: Unlock exclusive in-game content for upcoming Halo titles by watching original Halo programming and entertainment, participating in interactive polls or trying your hand at trivia.
- Multiplatform Access: Sync Windows 8.1 devices to your Xbox One, and use it as a controller or a second screen. Begin your viewing experience on one screen and seamlessly continue it on another.
