  3. Do the Xbox TV Features Work if You Don't Have Cable?

The TV features intrigue me, but I don't have cable. I have a digital antenna, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and an HBO GO account through my parents' cable. Does anyone know if the TV features will work with my setup?

Seriously? Aren't both Netflix and HBO Go integrated into Xbox Live?

By saying they won't work we mean you're not going to be watching cable channels through an Xbox guide overlay unless you have a cable box to run through it.

You're still going to be able to quickly and nearly instantaneously open up Netflix and HBO GO apps with your voice.

Does the voice control search and navigation work?

IE, "Xbox, watch House of Cards."

Why would you turn on your Xbox One to watch TV if you have to have a cable box as well? Why would you run up your electric bill running yet another device (not to mention the wear and tear on said device) if you can do the exact same thing without turning said other device on? Just trying to figure out hor or why this feature is beneficial. That's like calling the person you're sitting next to on the phone in order to talk to them.
