The “one” in the name Xbox One is a little misleading when it comes to watching live TV through Microsoft’s new videogame console.
Though the device is being touted as an all-entertainment hub, accessing channels on it still requires a settop box from a pay-tv provider.
The Hdmi cord still required to connect the two boxes is the compromise Microsoft had to make in order to take its baby step toward revolutionizing how consumers interact with content.
Through Microsoft’s OneGuide, the Xbox One cleanly and cleverly organizes series from broadcast and cable networks, as well as the streaming content provided via entertainment apps like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon and Machinima. Like the new Windows, the OneGuide is a piece of software that lays on top of another — in this case, the often frustratingly slow and confusing onscreen listings of TV shows offered by most pay-tv providers.
OneGuide is smart and it works. »
