BBC America app on Xbox One

An official app for BBC America launched on the Xbox One last month and is available to download for free. Unfortunately, to view full episodes and movies on the app, users will need to be a paid subscriber via a third-party cable or satellite provider but this should be a useful app for those who already pay for the channel. Here’s the full app description:

Get caught up in your favorite BBC America shows with full episodes, video extras, and sneak peeks at upcoming series. Sample trailers and behind-the-scenes clips or sign in with a login provided by your cable or satellite provider to watch full episodes of ‘ Dirk GOrphan Black,’ ‘Top Gear,’ ‘The Graham Norton Show,’ and many more of our programs.

New episodes are available in-season, usually the day after broadcast. Most full episodes require a cable or satellite login, though season premieres are sometimes made available with no login required. Plus you can search the library and track recently-viewed episodes and resume where you left off.
