Just wondering about this, my TV is a Samsung 5 series and hasn't got an HDMI out and has freeview built in. So does this mean TVs like this won't allow an Xbox One to use it's TV guide feature?
Basicially, I'd need an external DVR/Freeview box for it to work?

How is the Xbox TV to work on TVs with built in freeview/freesat?

Maybe Microsoft will have a work around for that situation like Soldier 95B is hinting, but I suspect Vip3r you are out of luck on that one.
Everything we've seen so far requires you to have a separate cable/satellite box that can be plugged via HDMI into the back of the Xbone using its HDMI In port. I would imagine that yes you will need a set top freeview/cable box to take full advantage of the Xbone's TV features, assuming they are even available in your region. There is a good chance that some providers in supported regions with their own solutions won't be supported either.

I know in the UK (where I am) Sky (satellite) and Virgin (cable) are popular, but so is Freeview and all TV's have this built in, as mentioned above. How common is over the air broadcast in the US? Do people mainly use external boxes? Excuse my ignorance.
