Out now in the US and Canada
In addition to the built-in HDMI cable box input slot on the Xbox One, Microsoft has announced a new Over-the-Air TV Tuner device, which launches today on the Microsoft Store for $60.
In short, it basically hooks up to an HDTV antenna to allow you to access TV on your console like a standard box, as well as pause live TV for “up to 30 minutes.” It will also allow those of you out there who don’t have a cable subscription to access those basic network channels with all of the typical UI fixins like snapping.
It’s kind of pricey, but if it works, it’s a great way to augment Sling TV and cut the cord.
