Disc to digital (Xbox One)?

I have the disc versions of Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition for the Xbox One and Im thinking about purchasing the Xbox One S which has no disc slot, do I have to repurchase these games or will Xbox recognize that I already have the games and let me download the digital?

    they have a disc version xbox one s you can get if you don't want the X.  then you can keep your discs and still have the option of getting digital OR discs.  not being forced one way or the other.

    You would have to buy them again. 

    It may be downloaded to your console's hard drive, but it's the disc that proves you own it.  Since you can't use a disc with the digital-only Xbox One S, it wouldn't know you own the games.

    I think you would have to buy them again digitally. 

    There is an XBox One S that does have a disc slot.  It's the "SAD" edition (S All-Digital) that doesn't have the slot.

    So if you have disc-based games, you don't want the all-digital edition.
