Here’s all of the Xbox One entertainment apps launching by spring 2014

Microsoft has a bunch of entertainment apps lined up to launch for its Xbox One console between the November 22, 2013 hardware launch and spring 2014. There’s nothing too surprising in the initial lineup of 19 apps that are coming to North America; all of it fits with the company’s vision for the new console, of delivering an all-in-one entertainment experience.

Here’s the official lineup:

  • Amazon Instant Video
  • Crackle
  • CWTV
  • ESPN
  • Fox Now
  • FXNow
  • HBO Go
  • Hulu Plus
  • Machinima
  • Muzu TV
  • Netflix
  • Redbox Instant
  • Target Ticket
  • TED
  • NFL on Xbox One
  • Twitch
  • Univision Deportes
  • Verizon FiOS TV
  • Vudu

The span of time between November 22 and “spring 2014” is fairly large, but we can make some educated guesses as to which apps will be available closer to launch. You can bet, for example, that both Netflix and Hulu Plus will be there on day one. Both apps are widely used by Xbox 360 owners and, more than that, we got to see both in action during a recent preview with the final retail console. It’s also likely that the NFL app will be available on day one, since the football season is already fully underway and will be over well before the spring.

Beyond that, it’s hard to say what will be coming when. Certain apps, such as Twitch, probably carry a higher priority than others, but without a release schedule there’s no way to know for sure. We’ll find out soon enough though, what with the console launch set to happen just two weeks from today.
