We’ve been on the Xbox 360 for a while and together with PlayStation, we’ve seen games consoles overtake computers as popular devices for enjoying our service.
The Xbox One app includes all the popular features of blinkbox apps on other devices including the ability to browse and buy from a vast catalogue of movies and TV, filter by Best Sellers, New Releases, Top Selling and Genre and search to find the movie or TV series you’re after.
