  2. An activation code will be displayed on your Xbox screen. On an internet-enabled device, go to xbox.fox.com/activate and enter the code that was displayed on your Xbox screen. Click submit.

  4. You will see a “congratulations” screen on your Xbox monitor once the activation is complete. Select Continue to enter the app.

Note If you select Skip, you can activate later by selecting any episode with a "lock" icon on the video thumbnail and following the instructions or by selecting Sign In from the app's Settings menu.

Watch FOX NOW

Go to video, My Video Apps, and then FOX NOW.

  1. From the Featured hub, you can:
    • Watch any of the featured programs displayed in the center.
    • Scroll to the right to search by Shows.
  2. Select something to watch, and then select Play.

Use Family Settings to control access to content

If you use Family Settings to control which movies and TV shows can be watched through Xbox Live, the FOX NOW app will follow these settings. For example, if you prohibit TV-MA-rated TV shows from being watched on your console, those programs will be marked with a "restricted video" icon in the FOX NOW app. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.

For more information about how to restrict access to movies and TV shows by using a pass code, see Set parental controls for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live.
