Part Two: Xbox One FAQ: Key things worth knowing before you buy


Sony backed the right format horse for the last console generation, and now the Xbox One joins the PS4 by adding Blu-ray disc support, so you can watch hi-def flicks on the One. If you’ve managed to build up an extensive 3D Blu-ray collection, you can ditch the Blu-ray player too, as the Xbox One supports 3D Blu-ray discs. Additionally, to get one over its rivals at launch, the Xbox One will play CDs if you still need to do that kind of thing. Learn>> Play Region Locked Blu-ray/DVD on Xbox One


One of the big things Microsoft has focused on delivering over the course of 2014 is improving the entertainment features of the Xbox One – taking it tantalisingly close to being the all-in-one entertainment console it always promised to be. That includes the introduction of DLNA support in the Xbox One October update. DLNA support enables the Xbox One to stream media content from DLNA-equipped PCs or servers, turning your Xbox One into a streaming machine.

Microsoft also added the Xbox One Media Player in the same update, allowing you to plug in a USB key full of music and video and play that content through your Xbox One. The Xbox One is also one of the first consoles – the Xbox 360 being the other one – to get the Plex app. Plex is a media service that enables you to stream all the media content on your computer straight to your Xbox One.

A feature perfect for multitaskers, the Xbox One will let you run two applications at the same time, so you can play games and catch up on Game of Thrones at the same time. It uses the same 'Snap' feature as Windows 8-running devices like the Microsoft Surface Pro 2, enabling you to also double up with other apps like Skype chats. Now you can pretend you're listening to friends and family overseas while you slash through another enemy in Ryse.


Natively the Xbox One is compatible with cable or satellite TV services like Virgin Media or Sky, so if you’re lucky enough to subscribe to one of those, you can feed them straight in.

Just plug your cable/satellite TV set-top box into your Xbox One via HDMI cable, then your Xbox One to your TV via another HDMI cable. Once you’ve done that, turn on your TV and Xbox One. Your console will bring up the TV Setup steps that will guide you through the simple process.

For those of you who don’t have cable or satellite TV, the Xbox One is now compatible with Freeview and Freeview HD signals thanks to a nifty and affordable accessory known as the Xbox One Digital TV Tuner. Retailing for £24.99, the Digital TV Tuner is an inexpensive way to get Freeview feeds integrated into your Xbox One experience, without the need for a monthly payment subscription.

To use the Digital TV Tuner, just plug your aerial cable into the TV Tuner, then feed the USB cable of the TV Tuner into the back of your Xbox One. You’ll then be guided through the same TV Setup process as with cable/satellite. Tips >>Connect An Xbox 360 to Your TV
