My Setup: I have Verizon FIOS for internet but I don’t subscribe to cable TV. When I have some time to watch TV it is mostly PBS or local news channels through over-the-air HDTV transmissions. The coaxial HDTV antenna cable directly connects to my TV which has an HDTV tuner built in.
I believe that I am not alone and there are many more out there who watch TV through over the air HDTV transmissions. As you know Xbox One can control your cable box.
My Question: What is the best option to control my TV channels through Xbox One? I have heard that govt. requires cable companies to provide free local channels if there is a physical cable connection providing other services (e.g., internet in my case). Is that true? Is there an option where I can buy a tuner instead of renting a cable box from the cable companies, which can also be controlled by Xbox One?
