The Xbox One, or the Original Xbox One, was initially released in 2013, and the lineup expanded to 3 main models: Xbox One S, Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, and Xbox One X. As you can see, except for Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, the other two models are equipped with a (Ultra HD) Blu-ray optical drive for playing physical games and watching DVD movies.

In a nut shell, Xbox One DVD playback capacity is unavailable on the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition only. After all, it's designed for disc-free gaming and online media streaming. But the good news is, there's still a workaround that can make it possible. Next, I'll elaborate on the details about how to watch DVD movies on Xbox One, regardless of which model you have.
