Am I the only one that cringes During the Samsung "Hi TV" commercial?

I mean the kids is holding the freaking remote in his hand yet he holds the remote to his mouth and say "hi tv"...

This is how I feel about XBOX TV integration. It will be a cool gimmick to try around for a bit..But eventually probably unplug the cable box from the xbox and run everything into my receiver.



Well, you obviously don't play computer games while trying to watch the Sunday Ticket. There are a million scenarios this will be useful for but you can't see 2 inches in front of your face.

Can't wait for this in combination with Snap mode. With hockey starting, it's going to be great to snap hockey and gaming instead of picture-in-picture overlaying on the game's UI

Doritos and mountain dew yeah merica. TV football yeah yeah.

Idiocracy. It is happening.


When you add that into the equation it sounds like a stroke of genius! Now I can control my tv with Doritos dust on my hands and not ruin a controller in the process. Thanks, Microsoft!


But then how will the ponies use their DualShock 4 touch screen with their fingers full of Taco Bell sauce that they bought with their 5$ lunch box from Taco Bell?

'You don't have to push an extra button to watch TV now.'

Thank ****, I was getting exhausted


I've replaced the "****" with every curse word I know and I can't make any sense of this. I've got to know the word that was censored.

A million huh?

Well for me if I'm really into watching sports or a tv show i watch sports or a tv show I really dont need to be on Live to do so...I dont want to have live TV running next to a game I'm playing. If there's something I really want to watch Ill stop playing the game or record the show..

And if its for fantasy league having a laptop or ipad next to me pretty much does the same exact thing.
