First post on this forum. I just realized I can watch my OTA via my One S. My tuner is by Terk, not a supported brand. Is there a way around this for control, import IR commands? Worst case I could program my remote to enter the commands on the corresponding buttons when Xbox is the source. But I'd rather keep it within Xbox.
The most glaring issue with Xbox One OTA TV, stems from Microsoft going back on their promise to bring OTA TV DVR capabilities to XBox, they promised in 2015 only to put it on hold because as they say there wasn't a high enough demand.
Imo, Microsoft has really missed the boat on this feature. There are quite alot of people wanting to "CUT THE CORD" and ditch traditional cable. But in order to do that Ota TV DVR capability is needed. Tevos cost 150-200$ and then have a monthly subscription on Top of that.
If this feature was added you'd have for $250-350$ a device that not only is a great gaming system but also doubles as a HDR blue ray player as well as a OTA DVR..It'd be hard for people to overlook such a device. The value would be to great 1 device to replace 3.
I think you'd get a different market segment, nit the traditional gaming market but those who are cord cutters. You would be exposing those new customers to your eco-system. To me its a no-brainer
To me without DVR function, the TV APP is useless and there really isn't a benefit to watching TV via X-BOX ONE s.
I just finished setting up a MOHU antenna to give OTA TV to 3 rooms, I'm trying to find a reasonable DVR solution. I also just recently bought. An XBOX ONE S, and was excited to see DVR come only to be disappointed when I read that it never got done. It would have solved alot of problems.
If any of you want this feature please do to the Xbox page and upvote it so it gets done iirc, there are 6k in upvotes but apparently they say that's not enough so the more the better. To me it would really make the Xbox one stand out from the rest and would really solidify it as entertainment hub of the house.
