Xbox Video coming soon to Windows Phone? Check!

Numerous apps and games have been announced for Windows Phone at Nokia World 2013, but there's one app in particular which is worth mentioning on its own - Xbox Video. That's right, folks. Xbox Video is coming to a Windows Phone near you. So, what's the app going to do and why should you be interested?

According to the Windows Phone Blog (a fairly solid source, eh?), Xbox Video will enable you to "access a massive library of blockbuster movies and TV shows." Just like you can on your Xbox or Windows 8 PC. I believe there's a single image that sums up everyone's reaction to that quote:

Awh Yeah

Right, now we've got the excitement out the way, you'll be able to purchase or rent movies and TV shows, watching them on any supported device. Arriving in time for the holiday season, you'll be able to catch all those festive classics on the smaller (or "relatively large" if you're grabbing the new Lumia phablets) screen.

Unfortunately, there's no date as to when we can expect to see Xbox Video on Windows Phone. We'll hopefully have more information as the day progresses. Stay tuned to our feeds for the latest from the floor.
