Xbox Video App On Xbox One Doesn’t Allow Downloads


Users have the option to download or stream content purchased or rented through Microsoft’s Xbox Video service, however the app on Xbox One doesn’t allow users to download content. The option is missing on the console despite the fact that Xbox 360 and Windows version of Xbox Video have the download option. It appears that users are only allowed to stream content on the Xbox One. This might prove to be a problem for users with slow connections, streaming videos will be a headache. However, the Xbox Video app on the new console will notify users to confirm payment for movies or shows if their networks aren’t “fast enough to stream the video.”

The folks at Neowin note that content purchased through the app on Xbox One does not display a disclaimer that is displayed on the Xbox 360 version of the app. The disclaimer tells the user for how long the license for the content lasts, as certain studios that provide the content limited the duration of a customer’s license. Videos exclusive to Xbox 360, which don’t play on any other device, don’t appear for users on the service’s app for Xbox One. Microsoft is yet to comment on why such differences exist in different versions of the same service’s app.
