Microsoft announces Comedy Central and Nickelodeon for Xbox

Comedy Central

Staring at your Xbox 360 dashboard thinking about what to do next? If you reside in the US, you'll be able to enjoy two TV brands on the console: Comedy Central and Nickelodeon. Xbox Live Gold subscribers can enjoy stand-up comedy and the top shows on Comedy Central and more than 6,000 videos of the funniest comedians are available. But what if you have children who want to enjoy media on the Xbox? This is where Nickelodeon comes into play.


Transforming the Xbox 360 console into a kid-friendly home of entertainment, children (and parents) will be able to enjoy top Nickelodeon shows and characters. Again, should you have a Gold subscription, full episodes, humorous videos and animated shorts from stars are just a selection away. The Nick app brings the likes of SpongeBob, Sam and Cat and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the Xbox.

Head on over to the Xbox Wire for all the details and requirements.

Will these work on a UK account after downloading them through a US account?? Not had chance to try it out yet.

Warren Dance says:

Nope, tried it. Not available for your region. Why I don't know, we get both those channels in the UK.

sayonical says:

More Futuramamaaaa :D

Quin 2013 says:

I haven't seen any other shows on there except for comedy so far, unless I missed it somehow.

erzhik says:

Does it bring full episodes of South Park? Or is it just stand up comedians?

AriesDog says:

Just stand up comedians.

Quin 2013 says:


Would be nice to have more shows available, rather than just comedy. Which is great, nonetheless.

erzhik says:

Well that's pretty stupid considering that majority of people watch CC for South Park. If there was no South Park, there would be no Comedy Central.

greg_mitch says:

Majority? I never watch SP but am on CC everyday.

erzhik says:

Yes, its their biggest and most profitable show. It's also the reason why Comedy Central is a premium channel.

I only watch it for The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. For South Park reruns, I prefer to watch on southparkstudios.com

Quin 2013 says:

South park is the only thing I don't watch on cc.

Not that I dislike it, it's just that I've grown out of it.

jlynnm350z says:

Cool, hopefully get more channels in the future. Like the porn channel for example.

Quin 2013 says:

Lmao youporn app!!!

Wael Hasno says:

US, US, US, pfffft

myrandex says:

Ugh requires gold. This stuff along with netflix should work with Silver accounts :/. Or better yet free gold accounts for all WP users, what an excellent idea to get marketshare!

greg_mitch says:

This guys knows it!

Zeeshan360 says:

Yeah.. It's kinda idiotic keeping apps behind a pay wall but then Microsoft can't justify charging Gold for Multiplayer gaming on Xbox console .. Lol :P

Quin 2013 says:

You must be on psn

kirklyt says:

Do they both have apps for WP..?

blackhawk556 says:

I wish we could pay per channel every month (a la carte). Xbox: you want HBO? That will be $10/month. You want Versus? $10. The outdoor channel (hunting stuff) $10/month. That would be awesome.

jgbstetson says:

Oh we can dream. The current system is ideal because tends to mask supply and demand pretty well. Not ideal for the consumer, of course.

erzhik says:

Then cable providers would lose millions because lets be honest.... Who watches all 800 channels in their line up? I want 10 at most.

Quin 2013 says:

I would love to have a WPCentral app for Xbox!


schlubadub says:

It has a browser already :P

WP95 says:

no comcast provider for nick. :(

Vvillegas134 says:

Wait! So I can get all current aired and past shows on my Xbox? All that's needed is Xbox live gold? Or do I need to have a cable subscription first to be able to take advantage of this?

Duffau says:

You need a cable subscription.
