    Has anything thought about sourcing a TV tuner from Europe and using it in the states? I'm mostly interested in the live stream TV to smart glass. Why can't I use a converter and plug the thing in?

    I know it plugs into the usb port on the xbone - is there a stateside element to the us version of xbone that blocks it from being used? Has anyone tried it?

    I don't believe it will work in the US....

    Edit, found a better explanation...
    "The ability to stream TV content to mobile devices depends on a number of factors related to licensing. This feature is launching first in the UFIGS markets, where the Xbox Digital TV Tuner will receive free OTA television. We are looking at how we can bring this to additional markets in the future."

    In other words, this rather exciting new feature for the Xbox One won't be released in the US until a ton of licensing deals can be signed with the various cable and satellite TV providers. How do you feel about the US and most other countries being kept out of the loop for mobile TV streaming via the Xbox One for a while?

    Thanks. Sounds like it's built-in to US software to not recognize it...
