TV listings are about to be removed for the Xbox One come May, making you revert to your cable providers sub-par listings again. Microsoft’s effort to overtake the television was undeniably good while it lasted – but sadly not all good things were made to last long.
“Based on customer usage and feedback, we’re constantly evolving the Xbox experience,” says Jonathan Hildebrandt, a program manager for Microsoft’s Xbox Experiences group. “To that end, beginning this May we’ll be sunsetting live TV listings for OneGuide on Xbox One.” OneGuide users will still be able to access the HDMI passthrough feature on the Xbox One to watch connected devices, or still access a TV tuner, but TV listings will be removed.
This is probably a sign that Xbox TV is long gone. Are you saddened by this? Let us know in the comments section below!
