Gamescom 2014: 343 Industries unveils The Halo Channel

Ahead of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Halo: Nightfall and the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta coming later this year, we’re excited to unveil the Halo Channel – an all-new interactive digital network that provides unprecedented, personalized access to theHalo universe. Created by 343 Industries, the Halo Channel is home to all your Halo content and entertainment, and includes an abundance of interactive features that allows fans to immerse themselves in Halo like never before.

The Halo Channel will be available on Xbox One and Windows 8.1 devices on Nov. 11, 2014, and a version for Windows Phone 8.1 will be made available shortly after. Key features include:

  • Live and Timely Content – Along with a library of original programming and entertainment, access timely Halo news and live events including eSports broadcasts via the Halo Channel.  Through robust Twitch integration viewers can watch Halobroadcasts, follow their favorite players and launch into the game with the press of a button. In addition, the Halo Channel can display stats and data during matches, allowing you to monitor players in real-time.

  • Interactive and Sharable – Interact with Halo content with a personalized viewing experience, social sharing, Halo Encyclopedia integration and a best-in-class video platform. Instantly connect with the Halo community and your friends through social media, sharing your favorite Halo moments and content.  Pull up the Halo Encyclopedia and learn more about the scene you’re watching, including characters, weapons, vehicles, locations and more.  

  • Rewarding – Unlock a variety of exclusive in-game content for upcoming Halo titles – including Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Halo 5: Guardians – by watching original Halo programming and entertainment, participating in some of the interactive community polls or trying your hand at trivia that will test your knowledge of the Halouniverse.
  • Multiplatform Access - Sync your Windows 8.1 device to your Xbox One, and use it as a controller or a second screen where you can access the Halo Channel.  At any time, you can begin your viewing experience on one screen and seamlessly continue it on another. 

Check out the video above for a first look at the Halo Channel, and stay tuned to Xbox Wire for a more in-depth preview in the coming days!
