Download the GameSpot app

  2. Go to Apps and select Browse Apps.
  3. Browse for GameSpot.

Watch GameSpot

Go to Video, My Video Apps, and then GameSpot.

  1. From the app’s Home menu, you can:
    • Watch any of the featured programs displayed in the center of the menu.
    • Select What’s New or What’s Hot to quickly access relevant video content.
    • Select Who’s Watching What to view a filtered list of video content. Select All to see all videos, select Me to see the videos you have previously watched, or select Friends to see the videos your friends have watched.
    • Navigate to Search, Home, Shows, Reviews, Trailers, or Previews for additional video content options.
  2. Select any video to start playback.

Use Family Settings to control access to content

If you use Family Settings to control which movies and TV shows can be watched through Xbox Live, the GameSpot app will follow these settings. For example, if you prohibit TV-MA-rated TV shows from being watched on your console, those programs are marked with a "restricted video" icon in the GameSpot app. To play a locked item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to restrict movies and TV shows using a pass code, see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
