Set up and use the FrightPIX app


To use the FrightPIX app, you need the following:

  • To be signed into an Xbox Live Account.
  • At least 138 megabytes (MB) of available space.


Download the FrightPIX app

  1. On your console, sign in with your Xbox Live gamertag. (Xbox Live Gold Membership is required.)
  2. Go to apps and select Browse Apps.
  3. Find and select FrightPIX to download and install the app. After the download, the app automatically starts, and you can browse through and view details about the available content.

To start the FrightPIX app later, go to video, My Video Apps, and then FrightPIX.

Watch FrightPIX

  1. From the Xbox Dashboard, go to tv & movies.
  2. Select My Video Apps, and then select FrightPIX.
  3. From the featured hub, you can:
  • Watch any of the programs displayed in the center.
  • Select my queue to browse content that you’ve marked for later viewing.
  • Select history to review what you’ve watched and either continue or restart a movie you previously viewed.

     4. For more options, navigate to:

  • genres - to browse content by categories within the horror realm, such as Fan Favorites, Splatter, Supper Natural, Cult, and others.
  • browse – to browse all content or refine your list by new arrivals or most popular.
  • search – to find content by name.

     5. 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 FrightPIX app will follow those settings. For example, if you prohibit TV-MA-rated TV shows from being watched on your console, those shows will be marked with a "restricted video" icon in the FrightPIX app. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code. For more information about how to restrict Xbox Live content using Family Settings, see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
