Microsoft's Xbox One TV tuner is coming to Europe

Microsoft will release its small TV tuner in Europe in October. It allows you to watch TV channels on your Xbox One for just 30 Euro.

TV channels on your Xbox One

Microsoft's original vision for Xbox One was to make it part game console, part TV box. The new TV tuner is an element of that vision.

The tuner receives TV channels over antenna (DVB-T & DVB-T2) and over cable TV (DVB-C). However, there is no card reader so you will not be able to receive encrypted TV channels in your TV bundle.

The tuner has Kinect integrated, which means that you can change channels by speakers commands. There is also a picture-in-picture (game left, TV right) function, a pause TV feature, and Xbox SmartGlass support, enabling you to bring up the TV guide on your tablet or smartphone screen.

Microsoft will launch the TV tuner in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain in October, and is also testing it for other European regions such as the Nordic. It will sell for 30 Euro.
