I can’t figure out how to stream movies from my server to the xbox one? any advice?


Wish I could watch live TV without a cable box. Then I would consider purchasing. Only an antenna here…


I use the homeworx hw-150pvr to get an hdmi pass through for the xbox. Works rather well.


I’m going with the PS4: $100 less, more powerful hardware, free online gaming, and continued access to some of my favorite exclusive studios’ (Naughty Dog and Quanitc Dream) games.


I don’t live I the USA, so no streaming services, no media apps, no cable, and it won’t use anything from the old xbox, no games, no credits, no contollers, I may as well her the PS4 instead.


Great informative review and really funny too. I must admit I sometimes take a while to tune into your accent too. Keep up the good work
