Microsoft will be releasing updates to its Movies & TV app later today according to Ellen Kilbourne, a Windows Software Engineer for the Groove Music and Movies & TV apps. While not much will be changed in the app, we do know that Microsoft is prepping for the release of the Threshold 2 update of Windows 10 scheduled for release sometime this November.

The updated Movies & TV app will include a few under the hood changes.

The Microsoft DVD Player app will also received an update in preparation of the Windows 10 update coming in November. DVDs can’t be played in Windows Media Center on Windows 10, but users who want to play their DVDs can do so with the Microsoft DVD Player app.

The updates aren’t yet available for download, but when they are, they should automatically download and install. If automatic updates aren’t turned on or the app doesn’t download automatically, open the Store app, click your profile icon, click Downloads and updates, and then Check for updates.
