The Xbox One S is our favorite gaming console for 4K TVs for one big reason: its 4K Blu-ray player. Unlike the Playstation 4, Microsoft's console is capable of playing both standard Blu-rays and ultra-HD, 4K Blu-rays—all for less than you're likely to pay for a dedicated 4K Blu-ray player.

Plus, most 4K Blu-rays are in HDR, so if your TV supports HDR, you're in luck.

The Xbox One S can also stream 4K content from Netflix and Hulu, but as of now, it's the only major gaming console with a 4K Blu-ray player and 4K support via the Amazon Video app.

To download the update, simply boot up your Xbox One S and open the Amazon Video app—the update should be waiting for you. If you haven't already signed up for Amazon Video, you can enjoy a 30-day trial of the service for free.
