Entertainment has always been important for Xbox fans. For years we’ve been working with leading entertainment brands and TV providers to offer our customers a wide variety of entertainment options to accompany games. Today we unveiled the complete Xbox One experience – showcasing how Xbox One delivers the best games and multiplayer features, along with your favourite movies, music, sports and live TV – all in one place.
“We set out to make Xbox One the all-in-one games and entertainment hub for your home. The one system that offers the best games next to the best entertainment experiences and apps,” said Marc Whitten, Xbox Chief Product Officer. “Along with offering a stellar app portfolio from around the world, Xbox One takes the next step by offering them in a way that is seamless and easy to use.”
In addition to being the only games and entertainment system to deliver TV via HDMI pass-through, we are also bringing premium, voice and gesture controlled entertainment apps specifically designed for the living room*. Xbox One is empowering partners to bring media achievements, offering everybody the opportunity to achieve badges or rewards for the media they consume in addition to gaming.
Today, we’re excited to announce the very first wave of some of the world’s biggest names in entertainment coming to Xbox One in the 13 launch markets between 22nd November and spring 2014. In the UK, entertainment partners are as follows:

This list is just the first wave of partners coming to Xbox One. We will continue to announce more partners coming to the platform and just like we did for Xbox 360, we will launch new entertainment apps every month**.
In addition to the entertainment apps coming from partners, in every market Xbox One will also feature:
- Xbox Fitness
