Xbox One S now streams 4K video from Amazon

Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One's Amazon Video app has been updated to enable 4K support.

Keep in mind that even though 4K streaming is now possible using the Amazon Video app, not all content is available for streaming on the service in 4K resolution, so you can't watch everything in 4K.

More specifically, not everything will be available for streaming in 4K, but you can expect that original shows to have 4K UHD quality, with shows like The Grand Tour, Bosch, The Man in the High Castle to name a few.

The Amazon Video app was recently updated for the Xbox One S console to allow support for streaming content in glorious 4K resolution. All of these can be streamed on the Xbox One in full 4K UHD.

If you don't have an Xbox One S, you'll probably want to invest in the next iteration of the Xbox One, Project Scorpio. If you have already installed the application on the console, it should start updating itself if it hasn't already.

Oddly, Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro console doesn't yet support Amazon Video in 4K; we've reached out to Amazon for details on when it might receive the same functionality. They are available for $300 instead of the regular $350 price tag. The Forza Horizon 3 1 TB Xbox One S bundle is not part of the deal.
