Microsoft is getting more and more interested in bringing useful accessories on the market, and after the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter, now the company brings the Xbox One Digital TV Tuner in the UK and Europe.
Microsoft has always tried to make users perceive the Xbox One as a powerful home entertainment hub and has tried to use this advantage over the rival PlayStation. And to appeal to European users, as well, Microsoft is now bringing the Xbox One Digital TV Tuner to them. This is basically a small USB peripheral that connects coaxial outputs to the console.
Use this digital TV Tuner to connect your HD TV to Xbox One
The TV Tuner has finally gone on sale in the UK for £25, and in France, Germany, Italy and Spain for €30. By using it, you can start watching TV through your Xbox One. With this tiny device, you will get free-to-air HD channels, you will be able to navigate listings with OneGuide and set favourite channels for easy access.
It’s also possible to snap live TV while playing a game to see both at the same time, or pause your game to watch TV in full-screen and still receive invites and notifications. The Xbox One TV Tuner also lets you pause, rewind and fast-forward live shows and you can also stream live TV to any device with the SmartGlass app.
You should know that Kinect is required for Voice-enabled features. The app is now available on iOS and Windows devices and will be coming soon to Android, as well.
