Watch Xbox Video on Windows Phone 8

When you buy or rent a movie or TV show through Xbox Video, it's available in your collection and follows you from screen to screen. You can watch it on Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows Phone 8, or video.xbox.com.

Windows Phone 8

Download the Xbox Video app from the Windows Phone Store. Through this app, you can buy or rent videos and choose the format (standard or high definition) for viewing on a Windows Phone 8.

Buy or rent once, watch whenever and wherever you like

You can rent or buy a movie or TV show on one device, and then watch it on any device that has Xbox Video (such as Xbox One, Xbox 360, a Windows 8.1 PC, a Windows RT 8.1 tablet, or a Windows Phone 8) or on video.xbox.com.

Note When switching between devices, make sure you sign in with the Microsoft account that you used to purchase the video.

Portable bookmarks

With portable bookmarks, you’ll never lose your place in a video when switching between devices. Portable bookmarks allow you to start viewing a purchased or rented video on one device, and then move to a different device and watch from where you left off.
