HDHomeRun Xbox One app rolls out for owners of the live TV router

SiliconDust has revealed that it is rolling out its HDHomeRun app to the Xbox One. It will allow owners of the console and the company's HomeRun antenna and cable TV routers to stream live TV to the Xbox One.

The announcement was made via an update to the HDHomeRun DVR Kickstarter page:

We have been working with Microsoft and the XBox team to get the HDHomeRun app to XBox One. The HDHomeRun app was published a short while ago and will be available through the app store on the XBox in the next 24 hours.Both the XBox One Media Remote and the game controller are supported.

It's unclear if the Xbox One version of the app can store recorded TV on its own hard drive or if it needs a PC or external drive that's connected to the HDHomeRun router. You may remember that Microsoft put plans to add over-the-air DVR features to the Xbox One on indefinite hold earlier this year.

The Kickstarter page also mentions the Windows 10 version of the HDHomeRun app, which added support for Windows 10 Mobile earlier this month as well.

You can now use your Windows 10 Phone to watch live TV, discover new shows, schedule recordings, and watch everything recorded.

Download HDHomeRun from the Windows Store

You can purchase SliconDust's lineup of TV routers at Amazon, which include two that support over-the-air antennas and one with cable TV support.
