Haven't followed to closely and everyone seems to downplay the tv features in the threads I read.
Wondering if this can be done like picture in picture

I know you can watch YouTube videos at the same time. Not sure about TV specifically, but I'd say it's safe to assume
Hell, it's about time.

My understanding is no. You can snap back and forth. But I believe TV and Games cant be snapped on the screen together.

Im happy to be able to jump back and forth instantly. Theres always situation where I wanna see the end of a football game or something.

Aceybongos said you can snap tv while playing. It was to a reply he got in twitter.

Personally i can't wait to use it, my old tv did PiP great but this one doesn't so now i can play forza or DR while the football is on in the corner

I hope so. PIP seems to be a missing feature from most newer tv sets.
Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.

No but you can do this with a Wii U. Great feature. Watch TV and play CoD online at the same time.

That's exactly how I was thinking. Basketball just started and I can keep the game on while playing

Do you have a link that says you cant do that on the Xbox One? I find it weird that you are the only one that flatout said no but didnt provide a source to backup your claim.
