Increasingly, the future of television is going to the cord-cutters. I have an over-the-air tuner hooked to my television upstairs, as well as my Amazon Fire TV Stick. Between the two, I’m pretty set on entertainment, but the antenna isn’t the best antenna out there, and it seems like other folks like myself are looking for a way to branch out and increase their free television consumption. That’s where Microsoft comes in. Did you know your Xbox One can be turned into a TV/DVR system? It’s true, and it only costs $99 to make it happen. Microsoft’s Xbox One now has a TV tuner.
The Tuner comes from Mohu, and a glance at the Mohu website tells me that I have 34 over-the-air channels, most of which I currently can’t watch becuase they’re not offered by my satellite television dish. The tuner and antenna is quite a deal at $99; the Hauppauge tuner by itself is only $59.99. It provides a lot of fun functionality, from 30 minutes of pause time to the ability to watch TV and play games at the same time. You can also stream over-the-air television to your wireless device (phone or tablet), which would have been great back when it was March Madness NCAA basketball tournament time.Technorati Tags: Hauppauge, Home Theater, microsoft, microsoft xbox one tv tuner, mohu, television, television tuner for xbox, Xbox, xbox one, xbox tv tuner
