Lacking many basic features that were available in the previous versions of Windows Media Player. Audio and video settings aren't easily accessible and playlist features are non-existent. I can't put a series of videos on repeat to play in the background while I do my work.

Keeps getting better.

I've used this service for a long time now. All the way back when it was Zune. I have a small collection of movies and shows I've accumulated over the years, and I can watch them on all my devices. I mostly use my Xbox One and Surface. Also, the movie rentals are very convenient. Highly recommended!

Do not use w/W10 Skylake build yet. Worthless freezing

Update 11/27/15 Just spent over an hour with MS Support controlling my computer, doing the exact same things both Netflix and I have both done. Still doesn't work. This only affects the streaming apps that use IE/Silverlight as a backend. First, their tech support said they had no idea a problem exists. I reminded them there are 100s of 1000s of comments online saying otherwise. Finally after tweeting about it, a Tier 2 specialist offered to take over my newly built desktop and looks over everything, and sent logs to himself. He said they were doing this to gather data to fix the problem. That was over a month ago. No updates, and after the big Nov Win10 update, the problem still exists in the Modern app, IE, and Edge. It just sits there and stutters/lags on every video. I even did a fresh install of Win10 after the upgrade. This is a new Skylake i5 6600k/Intel 530 HD graphics build with 16gb ddr4 memory, and an SDD. BTW use VLC to play DVDs or your vids. No problem there.

good, but could be better

nice app, but only for purchasing from the store. not much in the way of personal video libraries, playlists features, or shuffling videos.

Good App Overall

Overall a good app. Works well and a clean easy to navigate interface. Just wish this app like many others would make renting videos cheaper. Red Box is $1.50 for Blu-rays and this is usually around $5.00 unless a special sale.

Love that I can get movies to download and watch offline. And right now renting them for ten cents is really nice. The regular prices aren't bad either. The selection is up to date and the choices cover a variety for any type of movie you could want.

How is there no way to delete a video?

App is awful. Can't delete anything. Also, season passes don't work.

Movies & TV has a unique style that blends neatly into the windows 8 and above interface. Clearly aimed at non PC users or non tech-savvy people, because a simple check, through it's options, won't satisfy the mildly curious. Therefore M&T doesn't even come close to Windows Media Player. Which isn't much by itself either. Incapable of opening most of the common video files today -or has issues with their codecs- it's a video player with even less memorable features than it's soul ancestor. On top of that, the neat interface could easily come with some themes for Windows Media Player, and considering that WMP isn't going anywhere in the near future, than, it would be a smart choice to make. Its lack of options and functionality are not worth the trouble of checking it out. Its easier to teach -or learn- 1 or 2 extra steps if it means using a better software. Maybe the only thing that could save it, would be to add some advanced features, available only to those who seek

their is far improvement from the previous one, I have change my os four times, because the window 10 do misbehave, I degraded my system to window 8.1 which am the fan off, because I don't really likes windows 8, then I say let me upgrade to windows 10 because it was close or similar to window 7, even though I upgraded to windows 10, I was planning changing back to 7, then I found out is now working perfectly ok, even the media player has been improved, I am enjoying it but I am afraid of installing my finger print, because I have issues with the previous windows 10, when ever I installed the finger print the will refuse to boot up, and this similar to others HP Elitebook , I believe you are trying to put things, workdone.

Purchased TV stops working

Season passes stop working and can't watch shows I purchased. Spent hours talking to MS with no solution. Get error about unable to check usage rights.
