To celebrate 20 years of Xbox, Microsoft has released a new documentary series called Power On: The Story of Xbox. The six-part documentary is designed to take fans through the history of the Xbox brand from its beginnings within Microsoft, through the challenges it faced such as the Red Ring of Death and an attempt to buy Nintendo, and more.

The new documentary is available in 30 languages and in English, it includes audio descriptions too. It’s available on a wide range of services including YouTube, Redbox, IMDbTV, The Roku Channel, Microsoft Movies & TV, and more. If you can wait, the series will be played in its entirety over on the Xbox Twitch channel on Thursday, December 16 from 10 a.m. Pacific Time. To join in the conversation, Microsoft wants people to use the Twitter hashtag #Xbox20.

If there are any collectors of Xbox merch out there, Microsoft says that each chapter of the documentary has its own high-quality poster prints, each of which is available in the Xbox Gear Shop but they’re not the most affordable posters ever so it’ll likely be the most dedicated Xbox fans picking these up.

To start watching Power On: The Story of Xbox, just head over to the documentary’s website where you’ll be able to find links to the series in your language and the places where it’s available to watch in your country.
