If you have an Xbox One and you’re just using over the air TV you will get the ability to have a fully functioning DVR next year. Xbox Director of Program Management Mike Ybarra announced during Gamescom today that the company will be offering the service for all existing users.
The functionality will work and allow you to record free-to-air TV and you will even be able to schedule recordings or take it on the go. The best part is that it will not require a subscription of its own. It’s not clear, as of yet, if this will work with existing cable or satellite subscriptions.
Windows 10 will allow users to stream any of the content recorded to the Xbox One to any Window 10 based device, including PC and phones. If you will be somewhere without internet access you can download anything you’ve recorded to your device before you leave and take it with you.
What do you think Xbox One owners? Is this functionality you’ll take advantage of?
