    While I firmly hold that Xbox Live was the superior online platform for most of this generation, it wasn't without its fair share of faults and flaws. Many lamented the fee for Gold, which is required to access many key features, for example. Even worse, though, was the service's complete lack of The CW.

    CWtf?

    But it's okay, everyone; I come bearing good news. Microsoft has finally realized the error of their ways, and they'll be rectifying this problem soon enough.

    9021-Oh yeah!

    But wait, there's more! The app will also take advantage of the 360's largely ignored Smart Glass functionality. While you're watching your favorite program (Beauty and the Beast for me. He's a beast and she's a beauty - how will they ever get along?), you'll be able to use your smartphone or tablet to access additional content.

    Well, Sony, Nintendo, it's been fun, but let's drop the pretense. You have nice services, guys, really, but I don't see-W, and that's all it takes.

    You haven't just been defeated. I think the proper term here would be "pooper pulverized."

    Or, to put it another way... Arrowed.

    Meh, I never really cared for any of the "apps" anyways.
    Mainly due to having a RGH and a flashed 360 ;p
    I primarily use it for gaming.

    An interesting move.

    On the other hand though I may have been inclined to look favourably upon them once after what they did to Reaper I am not so sure I can work myself up to caring.

    At this rate though they might as well go the whole hog and just make a USB TV decoder.

    +1 Like for the SBEmail reference.

    I already have my DVR set to record Arrow every week, so this app does pretty much nothing for me.

    Using a game machine for gaming? How novel!

    (My brother, in comparison, uses his *exclusively* as a media center, which causes me great psychic pain.)

    RGH doesn't have access to multi media stuff anyways.
    At least stuff on XBL.

    You got your Roku in my game console, except it's really bad at the former.
