Enable Xbox One to function like a Slingbox
Why not allow the Xbox one to stream live TV to your smartphone from anywhere. Not just on your home network. This would be an awesome feature
Excellent idea and kind of obvious.
I think it can be done. You just have to use the Xbox app on Windows 10 and connect to your house using a VPN server (it's quite easy, really).
Same here i use hdmi passthrough with Ziggo TV in the Netherlands and, i also miss smartglass stream functions where the USB TV tuner supports this. The problem is that it only supports the free to air channels.

This would be great for me. My Slingbox just died and it cost $299.95. I rather buy another Xbox One than another Slingbox at that price point. This will also make it were there will be no reason to ever buy a Slingbox.
It's a shame, that my hdmi plugged in cable box cannot be streamed. Blassomy.
Sounds like a good idear/Slingbox on XBOX 1

This would be awesome. I dont want to have to buy a slingbox and have yet another passthrough device.
The demo video looked great showing one person playing a game and the other watching tv from tablet.
This type of feature would really add more value to the kinect sensor and would be awesome for watching my favorite sports team play while out of town. Please add this feature.
I would love placeshifting ... granted, I am using Slingbox right now so this feature is not exactly high priority for me, buconsidering that Xbox is connected to the internet, and can acquire TV signal through it's HDMI, the ability to stream it to the Smartglass app sounds like an obvious feature to me. Airplay/Apple TV support would be stellar.
Doing the slingbox thing would really work in Microsofts favor.
Yes this is exactly what I want. We can already control the TV remotely with Kinect and Smartglass. Being able to stream what is being displayed on the Xbox remotely means I can watch TV/Xbox Apps anywhere that would be amazing!
