The Amazon Video app is currently one of the best deals in entertainment right as it comes included with a Prime account. Lots of users sign up for the retailer’s Prime membership scheme to get two-day shipping with the streaming service viewed as a bonus. Now, combined with Microsoft’s Xbox One S and its capability of outputting 4K Ultra-High-Definition and equipped with a Blu-Ray disc player, the pair are most definitely a match made in heaven.

Megan Hodel, Sr. Product Marketing Manager from Microsoft, said this on the Xbox News page:
Starting today, Amazon Video fans can now watch their favorite shows and movies in stunning 4K UHD on their Xbox One S with the latest Amazon Video app update. Already have the Amazon Video app? Simply launch the app to get the update. Don’t have Amazon Video? Head to the Xbox App Store, download the app and sign up for your 30-Day free trial now.
Hodel further explained that with four times the resolution of standard HD, 4K Ultra HD can deliver the most realistic and clearest video there is and the Xbox One S is the only device that allows streaming of 4K video content.
Films and TV shows on Amazon Video that have less resolution will not be transformed into 4K resolution. So, it’s pretty clear to get all the benefits of 4K content, the source material must be in UHD. But with more content is now available in UHD, that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
