Introduction:
Hello ladies and gents, and welcome to the National Geographic's introduction to Xbox One Apps with the NAT GEO TV app. Like all other service provider apps before it, this app brings the content from the network through our Xbox. Unlike some of the bigger juggernauts though, this app can easily be completed in under one hour with minimal work and a whole lot of fast-forwarding.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
This app is tremendously easy, and with the fast-forward trick it becomes a cake walk. We will begin by loading the app and signing into our TV service provider to unlock "Golden Rectangle" (see achievement guide for a link to activate account). After that, we delve right into watching...err, fast-forwarding episodes. Starting with the original Nat Geo Channel, we tackle achievements for one episode watched ("Nat Geo Newbie"), three episodes watched ("Nat Geo Scout"), and five episodes watched ("Nat Geo Explorer"). After you hit number five, make sure to quickly do five more (to count towards 'Ultimate Global Adventurer") and then move onto Nat Geo WILD.

Unlike the original channel, we unlock achievements for three WILD episodes watched ("WILD Child") and five episodes watched, which unlocks both "WILD Animal" and "Global Adventurer" (for five episodes watched from both channels). Lastly, watch five more episodes in Nat Geo WILD to unlock the final achievement, "Ultimate Global Adventurer" (for 10 episodes watched from both channels).

Conclusion:
Unlike some of the other service provider apps, this one is very quick and can be wrapped up in under an hour easily. With only eight achievements and essentially two TV shows, NAT GEO TV can be wrapped up an added to the completion list in no time! Congratulations, and we'll see you next time.
