Live TV Series and Show Streaming Xbox One Video Apps on the web—Microsoft announced Wednesday that it has brought the Xbox Video store to the Web.
The Xbox ‘Live Gold Membership’ gives better access to entertainment from its partners with a bunch of options in movies, television, sports, and music.
Xbox users can now watch movies and TV shows from their Xbox console or Windows 8.1 device in Web browsers using Microsoft’s Silverlight plug-in.
Microsoft announced, its goals for Xbox One is to make the console a comprehensive living room entertainment system — connecting cable TV, gaming, and video in one single user interface.
The Xbox One is a home video game console developed by Microsoft. Announced on May 21, 2013, it is the successor to the Xbox 360 and the third console in the Xbox family. It directly competes with Sony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation 4 and Nintendo’s Wii U as part of the eighth generation of video game consoles.
The Xbox One was released in North America, several European markets, Australia, and New Zealand on November 22, 2013, and in 26 other markets, including Japan, the remaining European markets, and the Middle East, in September 2014.
It is also the first Xbox game console to be released in China, specifically in the Shanghai Free-Trade Zone. Microsoft and various publications have classified the device as an “all-in-one entertainment system”, making it a competitor to other digital media players, such as the Apple TV and Google TV platforms.
Microsoft announced that the app’s August update would enable game streaming from Xbox One consoles to Windows 10 PCs in 1080p and 60 frames per second.
