It seems that Microsoft may soon ditch the Blu-ray discs necessary for watching 4K movies on the Xbox One S.

Remember when Microsoft revealed its Xbox One S back in 2016?

Last year Microsoft revealed its latest console, the Xbox One S, at the 2016 E3 convention. The company did not only unveil features that gamers adore (like a smaller size, an updated Bluetooth controller, the ability to play Xbox 360 and Xbox One games, upcoming games, and 2TB of storage), but also announced features that made it a great addition to a home theater setup, like 4K internet streaming from content providers like Netflix and Amazon Instant Video along with its built-in Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player.

While at the time user were happy to hear that excellent piece of news, it now seems that things might be taking a different course.

Testing 4K video content for Movies & TV on the Xbox One S

Microsoft is currently testing out its own 4K video content for the Movies & TV on Xbox One S. Some users recently reported that the company asked them to complete an Xbox Insider task that required them to watch a short UHD clip of Pacific Rim and provide feedback afterwards to see if the content ran smoothly and was in true UHD.

The company currently testing this service is a sign that Microsoft will reveal it in the near future. But, on the other hand, it might just be the first steps in this project, so we can’t be sure of what’s going on just yet.

If you own an Xbox One S and also have a 4K TV, make sure you take a look at the clip if you’ve joined the Xbox Insider program.
