Xbox Wire:

Today, we’re announcing the very first wave of some of the world’s biggest names in entertainment rolling out on Xbox One in the 13 launch markets between Nov. 22 at launch and spring 2014:

Australia

  • Crackle
  • Machinima
  • MUZU TV
  • Network Ten’s tenplay
  • Quickflix
  • SBS On Demand
  • TED
  • Twitch

Notably absent from the list are ABC iView and YouTube, both available on the Xbox 360.

Kristen Bowen from YouTube Australia:

From John Luc and his Mychonny channel to Christiaan Van Vuuren’s Bondi Hipsters, Australian content creators are pushing creative boundaries and drawing huge online audiences in Australia and around the world. In fact, the majority of home-grown Aussie content is ‘exported’ – 9 out of 10 views of Australian YouTube content come from overseas.

Still, there’s much to do in encouraging more local creators to share their talents online, and develop new scripted shows and formats.

To help support the next generation of Australian storytellers, YouTube is teaming up with Screen Australia to launch the ‘Skip Ahead’ program, aimed at encouraging more talent to take up the online screen.

 

Daniel Rubino for WPCentral:

Fast forward to today, October 7th and the app has finally been updated to version 3.2. Unfortunately, the app has reverted back to its old web-player days, meaning if you click a YouTube link in email, MMS messages, etc. it will open YouTube in the browser. In fact, tapping the installed YouTube icon on your phone will simply redirect you to m.youtube.com for that not so premier experience.

Yikes — that’s one hell of an ‘update’.
