Microsoft isn't adding a TV DVR feature to the Xbox One anymore

Microsoft is no longer planning to add a TV DVR feature to its Xbox One console. The software giant originally unveiled plans to add TV DVR to the Xbox One back in August, noting that the feature would arrive some time in 2016. "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," revealed a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. "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."

Gaming features come first. TV stuff is a nice add-on but the gaming side of things should always be the priority. This is the right move.

Considering how the satellite/cable companies are overcharging ppl, I would like to see both.

Patience then.

More great games and features are coming.

The DVR feature needs an active cable/satellite subscription for it to work anyways. This feature would have been DOA when it released as subscription rates for these companies are at an all time low.

@annoyedgamer the DVR feature was for OTA tuner. So an active cable/satellite wouldn't have been needed. That being said I would think the DVR for OTA only would've been small. The all time low number of subscribers is greatly exaggerated.

I actually agree. MS does great media features and I would have liked to see them stay true to their word when they first started marketing XONE.

Wow. Three years later and Microsoft is focusing only on the games? WOW. Good job Microsoft!

At first I shook my head and said, why can't MS do this and bring games. Then I read,

'The DVR feature would have only been limited to free-to-air TV'

Yea...drop that mess.
