At this year’s Gamescom, Microsoft has unveiled what it calls “one of the most requested live TV features on Xbox Feedback”: a PVR for Over-the-Air TV.
The new feature will let users record live over-the-air TV, schedule recordings and take their shows on-the-go.
Microsoft introduced the Hauppauge Digital TV Tuner for Xbox One in the US and Canada and the Xbox One Digital TV Tuner in 16 European countries and Australia.
The set-top can also stream the over-the-air TV channels 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 using Xbox One.
Once the Xbox One is set up for over-the-air TV, the PVR function can be used by plugging a USB hard drive into the device.
