Mobile TV streaming for Xbox One

By on Aug, 13 2014 with Comments 0

MicrosoftIn addition to other new features, Microsoft is enabling the Xbox One to stream TV on a local network to smartphones and tablets running the Xbox SmartGlass app. Streaming TV requires that users have the Xbox One Digital TV Tuner, which was announced last week and will initially be available to a limited pool of launch countries, including the UK and France beginning soon and ahead of the full-scale launch in October.

The Tuner will allow people to directly connect free-to-air digital broadcast signals on the Xbox One without requiring an intervening device, and to navigate channels and use the OneGuide on their consoles. Streaming will work with SmartGlass apps on iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
