LOS ANGELES, JUNE 11, 2018 -- Working towards complete screen ubiquity, TBS and TNT announced the availability of their streaming apps on the Xbox One game console from Microsoft, the first gaming console to carry the top-rated network apps.

"The end goal is to create the most frictionless viewing experience that connects viewers to our brands however, whenever and wherever they want."
