While not the only streaming service or application on the Xbox One S, Amazon Video will now be available for streaming content from. On top of this, you will be able to fully stream your content in 4K resolution on the Xbox One S. However, it does come with a few limitations.
More specifically, not everything will be available for streaming in 4K, but you can expect that original shows to have 4K UHD quality, with shows like The Grand Tour, Bosch, The Man in the High Castle to name a few. All of these can be streamed on the Xbox One in full 4K UHD. This service is only available on the Xbox One S, as the regular Xbox One is not equipped with the capability to output 4K resolution.
The Xbox One Amazon application is following the example set by Hulu and Netflix, companies that already provide complete 4K playback for the Xbox One S.
There is other content which is available in full 4K, and you only need to browse the Amazon Video library. This would be the first time 4K streaming has been launched officially on the Xbox One S application. Previously, this feature has been released before, in December more specifically, but it didn’t have such large unveiling.
In order to benefit from this feature, all you have to do is update your Amazon Video application on your console and enjoy the content it provides. Normally, it should automatically update itself to provide 4K support. If you do not have the service, it can be experienced for free with a 30-day trial which will grant you full access to Amazon’s library. Hopefully, in the future, we can expect to see 4K games on the Xbox One S.
