Top-Rated Networks Drive Ubiquity of Screens with Addition of the Gaming Console and VIZIO and Sony Smart TVs

Platform Expansion Builds on the Nets' TVE Growth Trend with 5.8MM New Downloads in First Five Months of 2018 and the Addition of Younger Viewers

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. This announcement delivers on the networks' commitment to providing access to its programming everywhere consumers watch TV. The TBS & TNT apps are currently available to Xbox users and will be followed by upcoming launches on additional Smart TVs this month.

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

The TBS and TNT apps have continued to gain popularity with 5.8MM new downloads in the first four months of 2018. The networks' apps debut on Xbox One is the latest in a series of rollouts that offer "always on" and omnichannel experiences across connected devices and mobile apps. In addition to the rollout on Xbox, TBS and TNT are also adding apps on Smart TVs including Sony (Opera TVs and Blu-Ray Players) and VIZIO in the second quarter of this year. These Smart TV apps join Sony Bravia and Samsung Smart TVs on the list of the latest connected TVE apps to be launched by the two networks in the last two quarters.

Turner's TBS and TNT networks continue to be at the forefront of digital TV content in the US, having been the first to stream live on-air content and across multiple mobile and smart TV platforms. The TBS and TNT apps provide a seamless viewing experience of the networks' on-air programming including, live sports and blockbuster movies.
