Movie site Fandango’s video service, FandangoNow, launched an app today on Xbox One. It’s the first time the streaming service has been available on a console.
With its launch on Xbox One and recent expansion to other platforms including Android TV, FandangoNow today is available across an installed base of more than 100 million devices, according to Fandango president Paul Yanover. That’s more than double since Fandango, owned by Comcast’s NBCUniversal, acquired premium VOD service M-Go in January from Technicolor and DreamWorks Animation.
“At Fandango, we engage with millions of entertainment fans every day, super-serving their movie experience, starting with movie discovery at the first trailer release to theatrical ticketing and now at home with FandangoNOW,” Fandango president Paul Yanover said, in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Xbox to bring their users access to FandangoNOW’s extensive library of movies from the big screen and next-day TV shows right in their living room.”
FandangoNOW on Xbox One will also support DTS-HD surround sound.
Suicide Squad‘s extended cutlaunched today in FandangoNow and other digital stores. Other November releases include Sausage Party, The Secret Life of Pets, Jason Bourne, Don’t Breathe, Kubo and the Two Strings, and War Dogs.
