Microsoft Brings OTA Broadcast To Xbox

Read original story on: The Verge

Microsoft has announced the launch of a new tuner that will bring over-the-air (OTA) TV broadcasts, including ABC, Fox, CBS, NBC, PBS, and other non-cable channels, to Xbox users in the US and Canada. The tuner will come in the form of a $60 USB-connected add-on for the gaming console, which means that users will need an antenna to pick up the broadcasts in the first place. After all, Microsoft probably want to avoid being sued like Aereo, and this tuner dongle is certainly a neat workaround to add live TV streaming to its Xbox platform.
