Amazon has announced that its Lovefilm streaming TV and movie app is now available to download on the XBox One.
Although we knew it would be headed to Microsoft’s next-generation console, it’s always nice to see it arrive on the same day the console is made available. So if you are one of the early adopters, you can go ahead and download it now for free from the Xbox One App Marketplace.
In addition to facilitating your streaming needs in up to 1080p HD quality, it also supports Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound and features like Watchlist (for later viewing) and Whispersync, allowing users to pause and resume content across multiple devices.
The Lovefilm app also supports the Xbox One’s ‘snap’ and ‘fill’ screen modes (so it can be docked at the side of the screen while doing other things) and allows users to navigate the catalogue with a wave of the hand thanks to its Xbox One Kinect sensor support.
