Xbox One’s first wave of TV apps features Netflix, HBO Go, FiOS, NFL and much more

Xbox One apps

Long gone are the days when a game console merely had its launch lineup of games to worry about — in the modern era we also have to know about other types of entertainment. Microsoft is finally ready to reveal the “first wave” of apps that will arrive with its $500 Xbox One in each of the 13 launch markets and it’s a surprisingly healthy list. In the US we’re not seeing any services that weren’t already on Xbox 360, but internet video standards like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, HBO Go (not at launch), Vudu, Crackle and Redbox Instant are all present and accounted for along with TV everywhere efforts from Fox, CW, ESPN and Univision. International audiences can expect to see locally available services like Netflix, Lovefilm, Orange and Canal+, where applicable (check the official blog for a full list).

While there are no apps for Time Warner Cable, Comcast, or AT&T’s U-verse at launch, Verizon FiOS is present and accounted for as a traditional pay-TV provider in the US. The most notable missing app award would have to go to YouTube or BBC iPlayer (both are also absent from the PS4 apps list), although the console’s integrated browser could help with that.
