Twitter, HBO GO, Vevo, and Vine among dozens of incoming additions to Microsoft's latest console

With Microsoft expected to focus on games at next week's Electronic Entertainment Expo, the company today got some Xbox One app news out of the way, announcing 34 new offerings on their way to the console.

A whopping 9 for the UK!

Why can't UK have HBO GO? Surely a way to increase install base AND reduce piracy of certain programmes...

But what about Twitter or Vine already being worldwide? I don't understand that?!

NowTV but no Sky?! Sky News but no Sky Sports?

I wouldn't be surprised if HBO Go being available in the UK would cause friction with Sky, over the amount they pay to have HBO content exclusively on Sky Atlantic.
