Xbox One owners just got access to a lot more free content: Radio aggregator TuneIn went live with an app on the game console Tuesday, bringing more than 100,000 radio stations from across the globe to the Xbox One.

Also newly available on the device is the PBS Kids app, which offers free access to full episodes of shows like “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” “Peg + Cat” and “Dinosaur Train.”

For TuneIn, getting onto the Xbox represents a first step into the world of game consoles after previously launching on mobile devices, smart TVs and connected loudspeakers. The new TuneIn app for Xbox One offers users cross-device synchronization, meaning that a user’s favorite commute radio stations will automatically show up on the Xbox home screen as well.

PBS Kids is also new to game consoles, but has previously launched apps for mobile devices as well as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Chromecast. Altogether, PBS Kids now delivers 392 million streams per month on average across its digital properties, according to PBS Kids Digital VP Sara DeWitt.
