The Amazon Video app was recently updated for the Xbox One S console to allow support for streaming content in glorious 4K resolution.
Do note that the playback functionality is only available on the slim iteration, given that the standard Xbox One console does not support the high resolution. In addition, remember that not every video on the application can be streamed in 4K. Users must search for supported content, which includes a lot of popular names such as The Man in the High Castle, Bosch, Sneaky Pete, and The Grand Tour.
Xbox One S already featured other streaming applications that were previously updated to support 4K. Both Netflix and Hulu now join the Amazon Video app in the same category. If you have already installed the application on the console, it should start updating itself if it hasn’t already. Those who are interested in getting the app for the first time can get it from the Xbox Store for free and sign up for a 30-day free trial that gives access to the entire video library.
In other news, the 1TB Xbox One S bundles for Battlefield 1, Halo Wars 2, and Gears of War 4 have received a temporary price cut in the United States. They are available for $300 instead of the regular $350 price tag. Additionally, the 2 TB red Gears of War 4 bundle is available for $400 instead of $450. The Forza Horizon 3 1 TB Xbox One S bundle is not part of the deal.
This price cut comes just before Microsoft is expected to announce new details about Project Scorpio, including possibly its price and release date, at E3 or potentially sooner.
