Microsoft revealed in August that they will be releasing a digital Xbox One TV tuner for UK and the rest of Europe and now, it has been made available. This TV tuner will allow you to watch TV on your Xbox One console, by simply plugging the cable wire into the tuner.
After you have plugged in, Xbox One will prompt you to download the update for the TV tuner, and after a small setup, you will be done and will be watching TV on your console.
OneGuide will allow you to switch between channels and watch them in full screen among other options. It will also allow you to pause, rewind and fast forward live TV shows, giving you a chance to take a break.
Furthermore, you can use SmartGlass app to stream all the TV content on your smartphone (iOS and Windows phone, not available yet on Android) or tablets. This will allow you to multitask as you will be able to play video games on your TV while watching your favorite shows on your mobile phone.
The Xbox One TV Tuner is currently available at Microsoft store at the price of £24.99 or €29.99.
Currently, this new device is available in very few countries, but we hope that it will make its way to other regions sooner rather than later.
