The Xbox One will reward users with Achievements for watching entertainment content, Microsoft has confirmed.

First rumoured back in May, before the console was official announced, the system will provide Achievements for media apps like Amazon Instant Video and Xbox Video.

In July, Microsoft  said, "Other Xbox One applications such as video and music apps can now use Achievements to bring you awesome sneak peek content, early access, or subscription extensions."

Now, buried at the bottom of Microsoft’s media app announcement press release, the company has added, “Xbox One is empowering partners to bring media achievements, offering everybody the opportunity to achieve badges or rewards for the media they consume in addition to gaming.”

You can see an image of media Achievement progress on the new Xbox One dashboard below. For an explanation of the Xbox One’s Achievement and Challenge systems, click here.

Edit: As pointed out in the comments below, Challenges - which is what the media app Achievements are classed as - will earn users 0GS. So don't worry, your Gamerscore wont be overtaken by your Mum for watching Grey's Anatomy.

Xbox One is out on November 22nd.
