LOS ANGELES, CA – July 1, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – TEN: The Enthusiast Network announced today that Motor Trend OnDemand, which recently debuted its updated SVOD service this past May, is now available on Xbox One and Xbox 360 platforms. This is in addition to the preexisting availability on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Roku, Android devices, as well as the web.
In responding to customer requests, as well as looking strategically at the overall streaming landscape, the team at Motor Trend OnDemand made sure streaming auto enthusiasts can access 1,500-plus hours of original and live content, real-time racing events, and Formula 1 and IndyCar archives right from their own Xbox.
“In an effort to provide our viewers with exactly the enthusiast content they want, and on the platforms they want it, we are excited to now offer access to Motor Trend OnDemand to our Xbox fans,” says TEN’s CEO Scott Dickey. “We will continue to listen to our customers and provide the best ‘gearhead’ viewing experiences possible.”
