Blinkbox movies & TV has launched a dedicated app for the Xbox One console, giving even more homes easy access to the latest blockbuster movies and top TV series.
The new app complements the existing app for the Xbox 360 as well as apps for Apple and Android tablets, Sony PlayStation 3, Smart TVs, Windows 8 devices, set top boxes and PCs and Macs.
Blinkbox are also developing an app for Chromecast, Google’s thumb-sized media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on a TV.
The new Xbox One app will give users access to the very latest blockbuster movies and popular TV series. New release films available now on blinkbox include Oscar-winners 12 Years a Slave, The Wolf of Wall Street and Inside Llewyn Davis. TV series available include the critically acclaimed Hannibal and HBO series Girls and Game of Thrones.
Blinkbox Managing Director Adrian Letts commented:
“Our developers are working harder than Hugh Jackman’s personal trainer to give customers access to the very latest movies and TV shows on their favourite platforms and devices. We’ve been on the Xbox 360 for a while and together with PlayStation, we’ve seen games consoles overtake computers as popular devices for enjoying our service
“With Chromecast we love the fact that for £30 it’s possible to turn a TV with an HDMI input into a smart TV, meaning blinkbox will be even more accessible to those who want to enjoy the latest movies and TV without being tied into a subscription."
The Xbox One app includes all the popular features of blinkbox apps on other devices including the ability to browse and buy from a vast catalogue of movies and TV, filter by Best Sellers, New Releases, Top Selling and Genre and search to find the movie or TV series you’re after. The app also supports the Xbox One help functionality to offer relevant customer support based on where they are in the application.
