Welcome to Beam Theme Week! We’re thrilled to bring you five days of festivities in celebration of the global launch of the Beam viewing app on Xbox One. Each day, participating streamers will livestream their own interpretation of a unique and fun theme. To add to the festivities for those tuning in, we’ll be giving away over 2,000 Beam Pro codes, Xbox Live Gold 3-month codes, and ID@Xbox game codes throughout the week. Be sure to also check out our week-long takeover of Xbox Wire, bringing you daily posts about all things Beam and streaming from the Beam Team.
First things first: don’t forget to link your Microsoft account to Beam! It’s super easy. If you already have a Beam account, you will be prompted to connect it when you launch the Beam viewing app on Xbox One. If you don’t have an account, your Xbox Live Gamertag will become your Beam username. Now, here’s some more information about the different themes you’ll see next week!
- Mighty Monday: Vanquish the Monday blues by getting heroic! This could mean being a superhero (Anti-Procrastination Man, anyone?), paying tribute to your personal heroes, or even cosplaying as a character from mythology.
- Tropical Tuesday: BYOP (Bring Your Own Parrot. Or pineapple. Palm tree, even.)
- Onesie Wednesday: Try saying that five times fast! We think this day is fairly self-explanatory.
- Thursday of the Dead: Zombies, and monsters, and ghouls! Oh my!
- Fancy Friday: Time to suit up! Feel free to be as swanky or gaudy as you like.
We added special categories to Beam so you can easily browse through all the streamers who are celebrating with us. If you want to join in on the festivities as a streamer, simply change the game played field to one of the theme week titles above so other viewers can find you. And if you tweet about it, make sure to use the hashtag #BeamThemeWeek so we don’t miss it!
To help streamers get in the spirit, here are stream assets designed specifically for Beam Theme Week.
If you are a viewer, it is super easy to participate in the code giveaway for Beam Theme Week!
