PS5 vs Xbox Series X: Which Has the Best Streaming Apps?

A console's potential as a streaming video platform matters. While this is an area where you might expect the PS5 and Xbox Series X to be identical, it turns out that simply isn't the case.

Disney + app on Xbox Series X is broken I always get Error code 39. Disney customer service is useless. Also Livestreaming has issues where Twitch app will always broadcast with dark video.

The disparity between apps between both consoles is absurd, I loaded up my ps5 in my living room and was shocked that it had 5 apps that I would take advantage of
No fox
No nbc
No cbs
No nfl network
Not to mention the lack of 4k hdr on apps like disney plus

Idk about anybody else, but I buy a gaming console to play games. Most TV's nowadays already have apps on them for these things and your only using up more electricity using your console when you already have other devices that are capable as well. Just my opinion.

To be fair, I can’t imagine anyone with these consoles not playing them on a smart tv that has all the apps on it already. I know that LG doesn’t have HBO Max yet, so I guess that’s one downside currently for the PS5

Hmm never thought of it that way. Guess it is pointless powering a console to watch Netflix rather then just the TV. But you can control the xbox with Alexa :D and it is nice going from watching a video and then straight into the game you was playing. But quick resume does that when xbox is off to so that would work :/

@guaroguarino You can connect your TV to the internet via ethernet.. and its as fast if not faster than consoles. One less device, less power consumption.

@Zach Pohlman The console would be fine for all of that. But as others said, you TV can do it already. And if your TV is unable to stream on its own, then you need to buy a new TV to go with your new console anyway.
reysantaner - 2 dager siden
@Zach Pohlman do you have a PS5 or Series X? I can guarantee you that all the apps that were on the PS4 will make it on the PS5 soon enough. The Series X essentially has the same OS coding as last gen’s so porting was effortless. PS5 apps just need to be ported and ensured to work, which takes time. Trust me, I’m personally disappointed that NOburn TV isn’t there at launch, but I’m 100% sure it’s coming.

@Patrick B I don't have 45 Subscription Services, but I have Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+, Peacock, and Netflix which is the only app through my parents. On Prime I have Cinemax, Showtime, AMC+ (for Shudder and Horror movies in general), and Starz. Having all these on a console is EXTREMELY important to me as I use them all a lot.
Patrick B
Patrick B - 3 dager siden
@McNugget 94 That's actually a very valid point. If you have a TV that is suitable for the PS5/XBSX then it itself can stream from these apps at 4K already, which is what you should do as it'll use less power by a significant margin.

I get it. It’s nice to have our gaming consoles also be our entertainment device. I just don’t use my gaming console to watch movies or TV shows. I’d rather have my console cool off after a gaming session while using either my APPLE TV box or the built/ in apps on my smart TV.
