If you’re a fan of Amazon Video you’ll be happy to learn that you can now watch movies and shows on your Xbox One S in 4K. While other streaming services, such as Netlix, Hulu, and Vudu, already had 4K offerings, the inclusion of the Amazon Video Xbox App means even more glorious 4K content for you to binge.

The Man in the High Castle, Bosch, Goliath were just some of the Amazon Original shows announced to be available now in 4K.

The Xbox One S released last summer and came with the capacity to watch 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray as well as stream 4K Ultra HD content. It also enables high dynamic range (HDR) compatibility with recent games such as Final Fantasy XV, Gears of War 4, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

While I’ve yet to pick up a 4K television (please don’t make fun of me), I really enjoy The Man in the High Castle. If you need some World War II content to hold you over until Call of Duty WWII, it’ll get the job done. However, you can begin streaming Amazon’s content in 4K by simply downloading the latest update to the Amazon Video app on your Xbox One S.
