Microsoft launches web version of Xbox Video, is similar to the Windows 8.1 app

Microosft launches web version of Xbox Video, is similar to the Windows 8.1 app

Microsoft is rolling out the new Xbox Video web service today, which is similar to the Xbox Video app on Windows 8.1. Both services offer access to TV shows and movies and is designed as a replacement for the company’s Zune video service.

The Xbox Video web service can be accessed via video.xbox.com and features a similar layout like the Xbox Music web service. Content purchased via the Windows 8.1 app or via the Xbox One can be streamed via your web browser. Silverlight is required.

Unfortunately, the web service lacks HD support and is only available on Windows 8.1 or on the Xbox One. Microsoft is rumored to be launching a Windows Phone version of the Xbox Video app very soon – perhaps even alongside this web service.

Head over to https://video.xbox.com/ to check out the service!
