Today Microsoft has outlined what apps will be offered to Xbox One owners in the UK between launch and spring next year.

The list does includes Now TV, Netflix, Lovefilm, Twitch, 4OD and Eurosport.

That’s with an addition to Microsoft’s own first party apps like Skype, SkyDrive, Upload, Xbox Video, Xbox Music, Internet Explorer and Xbox Fitness.

Also DigitalSpy adds that Xbox One owners will also receive 100 minutes of free Skype chat time free for six months after launch.

This is just the first wave of partner apps heading to the platform and it expects new apps to launch every month on the console.

“We set out to make Xbox One the all-in-one games and entertainment hub for your home,” Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten stated. “The one system that offers the best games next to the best entertainment experiences and apps. Along with offering a stellar app portfolio from around the world, Xbox One takes the next step by offering them in a way that is seamless and easy to use.”
