The Xbox One S is slated to pick up support for Blu-ray Disc Recordable (BD-R) and Blu-ray Disc Recordable Erasable (BD-RE) formats, joining 4K UHD as another reason Blu-ray enthusiasts should strongly consider the console.
Update: Having previously written that this feature was Xbox One S exclusive, it does appear that this update will be available for regular Xbox Ones too.
Blu-ray recorders are becoming ever more popular as they climb down in price, opening up opportunities to record live TV for later viewing or archiving. Per Mike Ybarra's tweet, an app update should arrive for the Blu-ray player to support this new functionality very soon.
For those asking... yes, Xbox One S will support BD-R and BD-RE. App update should happen today. #XboxFor those asking... yes, Xbox One S will support BD-R and BD-RE. App update should happen today. #Xbox— ♏️ike Ybarra (@XboxQwik) November 2, 2016November 2, 2016
