Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that its plans for Xbox One TV DVR functionality were “on hold.” Microsoft may eventually launch the feature, but if you can’t wait, Tablo today launched an app in the Xbox Store that lets you watch over-the-air programming and record it.
With the app, users can record shows on networks like ABC, NBC and CBS without subscribing to cable. Shows are not recorded to your Xbox One’s hard drive, however. To use the app, you need to buy a Tablo DVR device, which streams recordings to your Xbox One (or other devices). The DVR hardware starts at $180.
