If you’ve got an Xbox One and in the market for some more Australian streaming apps, we’ve got some great news for you as Stan and ABC iView have recently been added to the gaming console’s media hub.

Gosh, week two already in 2015, and two review updates to mention here. First, some minor additions to the Xbox One review, adding a couple of new features.

Aussie Xbox One owners will be happy to find that Plus7 has arrived on the Australian App Store, and is available free of charge. Plus7 compliments the two main existing FTA catch-up services currently also available on the Xbox One; SBS On Demand and TenPlay as well as the Quickflix subscription service.
The Xbox One was promising its customers not only an impressive gaming console, but also the hub for the home’s entertainment center. And slowly, this is finally becoming a reality. Comedy Central has just appeared on the US app store, adding to the gradual, but ever-increasing range of catch-up and on-demand television options.
Zattoo, the Swiss-based European live TV simulcasting service, is now available on the recently introduced Swiss hub of the Xbox One. If you’ve already tried the earlier German version of Zattoo on the Xbox One and were disappointed, you may be happy to know that the latest version now adds the ability to record shows, along with the first hints of Zattoo Recall.
If you’ve been wondering why there is no Zattoo app for Switzerland’s new Xbox One hub, the good news could be that it is awaiting the next Xbox One update scheduled for October, when Zattoo will be incorporated into OneGuide… you heard that right!
