The first wave of Xbox One TV and Entertainment apps have been announced for the UK, the US and other launch territories.

The apps will be released between launch on November 22 and spring 2014, though Microsoft hasn't stated which apps will be ready from day one.

"We set out to make Xbox One the all-in-one games and entertainment hub for your home. The one system that offers the best games next to the best entertainment experiences and apps," said Marc Whitten, Xbox chief product officer. "Along with offering a stellar app portfolio from around the world, Xbox One takes the next step by offering them in a way that is seamless and easy to use."

Microsoft says it will "continue to announce more apps coming to the platform and both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 entertainment app portfolios will continue to grow weekly".

Furthermore, the following apps will also be available in all markets.

  • Xbox Fitness
  • Xbox Video
  • Xbox Music
  • Internet Explorer
  • Skype
  • SkyDrive
  • Upload Analysis

The only missing apps from our point of view are BBC iPlayer and SkyGo, which are pretty big losses for the UK market. Microsoft hasn't said if or when the apps will make an appearance.

I'm still on the Groupon £2 a month one until January, so going to make the most of all the content over Christmas.

I ended my initial 3 month free trial, so a few weeks later they sent me an email asking if I wanted to take them up at £15 a month, then a week later it was £7.50 a month, then I guess as a last gasp they offered me 4 months at £1 a month, so I accepted.

I'm sure someone will FOI the BBC sooner or later to find out the real reason why iPlayer isn't available at launch.

@FantasyMeister how do you get Now TV so cheaply?

It would surprise me if the existing apps on the 360 weren't there on launch day on the XBox One. I'd be particularly miffed with Now TV not being there in particular as I currently subscribe to it for a whopping £1 a month.

Pretty sure it's a moot point for me anyway as I'm leaning more and more towards the PS4 nowadays.

Only a couple of weeks now and I'll be able to play around with this in my own living room. Hmm, better tidy up in case anyone skypes!
