Microsoft announces AirPlay-like ‘SmartGlass’ wireless streaming app for Xbox/iOS

Microsoft just wrapped up its presentation at this year’s E3 event. While we did not hear anything about iOS support for its new cross-platform Xbox Music service, the company did confirm Xbox SmartGlass would come to Apple devices. SmartGlass incorporates at least some AirPlay-like features that enable users to send video from their mobile devices to Xbox Live and Windows 8. It would also allow phones and tablets to be used as a second screen for providing content related to video or games on Xbox.

Microsoft demoed the feature with Madden on Xbox. It allowed players to use their tablet’s touchscreen to draw plays. Unfortunately, Microsoft only mentioned support for Windows 8 mobile devices for the Xbox gaming features:

Microsoft announced ahead of the E3 conference a new software application called “SmartGlass,” which can be downloaded on Windows phones and Windows 8 tablets, as well as devices powered by rivals such as Apple Inc’s iOS and Google Inc’s Android operating systems… For TV, someone watching “Game of Thrones” on the “HBO GO” streaming service via Xbox could simultaneously browse websites about the show’s cast.

Disney launches three iOS apps with live-streaming content

Disney launched three iOS apps today for the iPhone and iPad that offer live streams to premium content previously only accessible on cable.

Watch Disney Channel (iTunes), Watch Disney XD (iTunes), and Watch Disney Junior (iTunes) are free on the App Store, but users must confirm their Comcast subscription to view live-streaming content. The apps allow non-subscribers to watch a limited collection of episodes, however, which is a step up from competing apps like HBO Go that only authorize cable subscribers.

Comcast closed a streaming deal with Disney in January as part of the company’s TV Everywhere initiative to pioneer open access to cable channels across all of its devices. These three Disney apps are the most recent product of that vision.

HBO comes to Apple TV via AirPlay on the updated HBO Go App

HBO just embraced Apple TV and AirPlay.

HBO’s Eric Kessler announced at AllThingsD’s Dive Into Media Conference on Tuesday that his company is enabling Airplay on the HBO Go app. The news follows reports from last week that claimed Apple and HBO would soon team up to deliver HBO Go content on the Apple TV.

The HBO Go app still requires an HBO cable subscription. Kessler did not mention whether HBO would offer a paid version of HBO Go to users who don’t subscribe, but HBO subscribers can at least now stream premium programs, such as “True Blood,” “Newsroom,” “Sopranos,” “Boardwalk Empire,” etc., from their iPhone or iPad to a television via AirPlay.

That’s not all, though. HBO said it hopes to bring HBO Go to the Apple TV soon:

“Our longterm goal for Go is to be on all devices all platforms. We will get on Apple TV as we’ve said all along.”

HBO Go is a free universal app on the App Store.
