Microsoft today made available separate applications for its Xbox Music service and Xbox Video service. The Xbox Music app for Windows Phone 8 requires an Xbox Music Pass, but lets device owners explore, stream, and download millions of songs. The Xbox Video app for WP8 is brand new and lets device owners rent and buy movies and televisions shows. New TV shows are available after they air. It supports WP8, as well as Microsoft's PCs, tablets, and Xbox One and Xbox 360 gaming consoles. The app offers ratings and reviews, lets users resume playback where they left off, and shows trailers. The Xbox Music and Xbox Video apps themselves are free to download from the Windows Phone Store.

It's about time. However, this app is very well done. The app itself may not support the purchase of HD video, but it will let you play it, if you already purchased it. I don't know if it plays in HD, but the video looks great, regardless.

Can't wait to see what features they will bring in the future.
