WATCH VIDEO. Microsoft has launched a new tuner for digital terrestrial TV on the Xbox games console and is now available in the US and Canada.
The DTT dongle is made by Hauppauge and was announced earlier this year.
The device also supports Sling TV, HBO Go, Netflix, Comedy Central, and Hulu Plus; as well as cable TV and satellite TV integration.
An over-the-air TV bundle that includes a Hauppauge Digital TV Tuner and a Mohu Leaf 50 antenna is now available at the microsoftstore.com for $99.99. The tuner is also available separately for $59.99 at Microsoft stores and Amazon.
“With the Hauppauge TV Tuner for Xbox One and an HDTV antenna, Xbox One owners can look forward to a variety of useful features, such as the ability to pause up to 30 minutes of live TV, watch TV on the right side of your screen while playing games with Snap, and navigate channels using Kinect voice controls,” Microsoft said in a statement.
“Additionally, users can stream over-the-air TV to other devices within the home using the Xbox app on Windows 10 devices or the Xbox One SmartGlass app on Windows, Windows Phone, iOS and Android, even while someone else is playing a game on Xbox One. Users can even change channels remotely using OneGuide without disrupting gameplay on the TV. Over-the-air TV integrates with OneGuide, storing all of your favourite content in one place.”
