Microsoft reneges on adding TV DVR to Xbox One Microsoft has announced that they will not be adding a TV DVR feature to the Xbox One, despite announcing it last August.
"After careful consideration, we've decided to put development of DVR for Over-the-Air TV on hold to focus our attention on launching new, higher fan-requested gaming experiences across Xbox One and Windows 10," said Microsoft. "We're always listening to fan feedback and we look forward to bringing more requested experiences on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox Live this year."

The announcement last year had promised a launch of the feature in 2016, including the ability to DVR OTA TV using digital TV tuners that Microsoft released in NA and the EU.

For now, it will be exciting to see what gaming-related features will be announced at E3.

They make you buy their crap XBOX and then they backtrack. Very creepy company. I'm starting to hate Microsoft and their lousy Windows 10.

"Make you" buy an Xbox? I somehow doubt that.

I'm sure people bought the XBOX because of the Reneged DVR TV Option they promised.

There were probably a few people who thought, "I want a good racing game like Gran Turismo or Forza plus a DVR"...and went XBone instead of PS4...kinda like I went PS3 instead of 360 because I wanted a basic linux terminal in my living room.

Anyway my son just bought the XBOX One. He chose that because of the backward compatibility to XBOX 360 games. No PS4 until it does the same. We are not rich ans need to start over buying games.
