Xbox One and TV

I just received my Xbox One today and have a couple questions before unboxing and setting it up. First , how long is the hdmi cable ? Second , once I hook up my xbox one to the tv does the xbox one always have to be on even when I'm not watching tv ? Thanks

To watch TV through the console, it does have to be on all the time, yes.  As for the HDMI cable, I didn't measure it myself, and most of mine is still bundled, but I believe it's about a 6 foot cord (my console sits within a couple of feet of the HDMI port on my TV)
