Xbox Series X and S entertainment apps confirmed
Apple TV for launch.
Microsoft has confirmed the entertainment apps available on Xbox Series X and S at launch.
Apps already available on Xbox One will be available on Xbox Series X and S, Microsoft said. These include the likes of Netflix, Disney+, YouTube, Spotify, Sky Go, Now TV and Amazon Prime Video.
But also out on 10th November is the Apple TV app. That's for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
Here's the US-focused list Microsoft provided in its announcement today (there will be more apps than on this list at launch, Microsoft stressed):
- HBO Max
- YouTube TV
- Amazon Prime Video
- NBC Peacock
- Sky Go
- Now TV
- Sky Ticket
Meanwhile, Microsoft confirmed the Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos tech is supported on Netflix, Disney+, and Vudu.
The Microsoft Store is twice as fast as before, Microsoft said in a blog post. The launch time of the Microsoft Store app is now about two seconds. You access apps in the refreshed Xbox dashboard experience in My Games & Apps.
There's a new Entertainment block for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, too, which showcases content across apps. For new Xbox owners, the Entertainment block is automatically pinned to Home. Existing gamers can scroll down to Add more > See all suggestions, select Entertainment, and add it to Home.
For comparison's sake, here are the entertainment apps launching with PlayStation 5.
