Welcome to the land of FOX Now App where you can get the news, the funnies, the serious business, and anything else you find in between. The app follows the trend in television providers enabling access to their networks via the Xbox One, and FOX is in fact following suit. The app is fairly easy to do, but will require you to have a TV service provider if you want to get every achievement. That being said, you can grab 9/10 achievements without the provider, albeit not the full completion. Let's take a look at the fastest way to finish this app.


Important Tip:

The FOX Now app considers a video 'watched' when you hit the approximate 20 second mark remaining in the video. Unfortunately, a menu bar pops up for some shows when you get inside of the final seconds of a video making it unable to rewind after you are in this threshold. Fear not though, you will still be able to utilize the trick to your advantage. Follow this example:


Take any show and for me it is American Idol. Now use the http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j401/markv1982/rt.png to fast-forward to about one-minute remaining in the video. You will have to go through an advertisement, of course, but make sure your achievement app is snapped so you know when it gives credit. If the menu bar does not pop up, simply rewind to about one minute remaining and let it run again. If the menu bar does pop up, you can exit the video and reload, or simply allow the next video to play and fast-forward to the end. Remember to have your achievements app snapped to ensure that you do not waste time or video progress.


This trick is great for trying to get "FOX Power Watcher 50" as you can watch the same episode that came out within three days over and over until all 50 have unlocked.


Abbreviated Walkthrough:

Remember to read the important tip above before beginning to go through the video achievements, but first things first. We must sign into our TV service provider to unlock "FOX All-Access" (remember to see the achievement for an exact step-by-step). After that's polished off, back to the menu screen to pin the app to the homepage unlocking "Hardcore FOX." Now it's time to find an episode of a show that has been released within three days of the current date, and watch it 50 times. Use the FOX TV Schedule to find out when a new show comes out within a few days of a time during which you will have the ability to grind out 50 watches. First you will unlock "FOX Newbie" for your first video. Then you should pop "FOX Binger, " "FOX Fan 5," and "FOX Power Watcher 5" for watching your first video, 5th video, and 5th video of an episode that is within three days of it airing.


We then move through the 10s (watching 10 episodes, and 10 within three days of airing) and then we finish up with the 50s (Watching 50 episodes, and 50 within three days of airing). This means your last two achievements to unlock should be "FOX Superfan 50" and "FOX Power Watcher 50."




Well that's it folks. A very easy app when you utilize the fast-forward trick, FOX NOW takes the well known network from the cable box and slaps it into your Xbox One. With FOX there is plenty of content, plenty of entertainment, and plenty of shows to satisfy all TV watchers. Until next time!

Watched very first video with FOX NOW


Click the all shows button, and then choose any show and simply watch a single video from it to unlock the achievement. Remember you can fast-forward to approximately 45 seconds left, and then let the video run until it updates to get credit for watching. Check out the important tip in the RoadMap for full details.

Watched 5 episodes from any FOX show during the same session


You must simply 'watch' five episodes from any FOX show in one app session. Now remember, like the important tip says in the RoadMap, you get credit for watching a show when you hit approximately 20 seconds remaining in the show. So you can use the http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j401/markv1982/rt.png to fast-forward, but remember to stop with approximately 45 seconds remaining in the episode to get credit for watching the show.


It would be wise to pair this up with "FOX Power Watcher 10" if possible as getting the TV shows within three days of them coming out can be a pain in off-peak times of the year.

Pinned FOX NOW or any FOX show to my home screen


From the menu screen, the option below "All Shows" is to "Pin FOX NOW." By clicking this you pin the app to your homepage and unlock the achievement. After the achievement unlocks you can simply unpin right afterwards if you do not wish to keep the app on your homepage.

Activate FOX NOW with your TV Provider account to unlock all available episodes in FOX NOW


When you load up the app for the first time you will come to their menu screen. Scroll down to the settings option to be presented with the TV Provider screen. You want to press http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j401/markv1982/Abut.png on the "Activate Device" button which will then prompt you to go to foxnow.com/activate. You will be presented with a code that you must type into the activate webpage, and after you choose your provider and log in you will get a welcome screen from FOX and your new benefits from logging in.

Your best bet is to watch out for different TV shows and hone in on one when a recent episode has played. Check the FOX TV Schedule to see when recent episodes have aired, and when you can catch it right. For me I waited until a TV show had aired a new episode a day or two before I had a day off. Then simply used the fast-forward trick until the achievement unlocked. This only takes upwards of an hour to do, even if the menu bar with other shows pops up and forces you to back out and restart the video.
