Grab the pop-corn! It’s time for Netflix

Brace yourselves, winter is coming… and so is Netflix. Refuge from the snow and catch up with those classic B&W films or that buzzing new show your friends cannot stop talking about (orange is the new black, anyone?) Furthermore you can now earn Achievements by rating titles, binging on a series or watching frequently.

Say: YouTube!

Learning the lyrics of your favourite song, finding how-to guides for computer programing or cracking up with vines. The much-loved streaming video service, a.k.a YouTube, is now available on Xbox One! Finding videos and watching whatever you want has never been easier: say YouTube! and the app will instantly pop up in your screen. Interactivity goes even further, you can scroll through videos just by using your hand gestures.

Show off your gaming expertise with Skydrive!

With SkyDrive for Xbox One, gamers can now capture their best moments, edit and personalize them to easily share them (and brag) with all their friends! They can send their clips up to the cloud in order showcase them in any way they want, whether through a social network, video upload sites or professional editing tools

Never apart with Skype!

Chat with your friends in a stunning HD TV! Skype has been specially adapted for Xbox One. Moreover, Snap mode can even let you chat while you want the latest episode of Downton Abbey or any other TV show you are into this season.

There’s no need to grab your laptop, Internet comes to your TV!

Explore the web on your TV with Internet Explorer for Xbox One. Use your voice to easily browse your favorite sites or take advantage of Bing and find what you need on the spot!

However, this is only the tip of the entertainment iceberg Xbox One is. Apps such as Amazon and TED (between others) are also part of this unique experience. With the wintery weather upon us and snow gazing through the windows, Xbox One sure came in a proper time. So, curl up in front of your TV and let it snow, the revolution of home entertainment is right in front of you.
