Now TV streaming service app from Sky available on Xbox One in UK

Now TV, the on-demand streaming service from satellite broadcaster Sky, is now available on the Xbox One game console in the United Kingdom. Previously available on the Xbox 360, as well as a large number of streaming devices and the PlayStation 4 as of last week, Pocket-Lint reports the Now TV app on Xbox One lets users pay in advance for passes to view the Sky Sports, Entertainment, and Movies packages, without requiring a satellite subscription.




Facebook Gifts closing on August 12th after nearly three years of service

Facebook is closing its Gifts service on August 12th. Initially launched in September 2012 after the social network acquired Karma, Recode writes that the Gifts team will continue to work on various "commerce-related projects." Though Facebook has not given an explanation for its shuttering of Gifts, it is likely that there was not enough interest in the service, which allowed Facebook users to buy each other digital gift cards.
