Set up TV integration on your Xbox One, and you can not only watch TV on your Xbox. You can also stream live TV from your Xbox to a Windows 10 PC, Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, or Android device over your home network.
There are two options: First, this feature only works over your home network, so you can’t stream TV shows over the Internet. Secondly, this only works with wireless television, so you cannot stream live television from a cable or satellite box.
Windows 10 Xbox to PC streaming initially offered this feature but was quickly removed. There are likely to be concerned about copyright and licensing.
How to Stream Live TV to a Windows 10 PC
Use the Xbox app on Windows 10 to stream live TV to your PC, just like you would do to stream Xbox One games to your PC.
To do this, open the Xbox app on your Windows PC. Click the Connect icon in the lower-left corner of the window and connect to your Xbox One if you’re not already connected. Your PC should search your local network for your Xbox One and find it quickly.
Click the Stream icon at the top of this section to start streaming from your Xbox One. If you are already watching TV on your Xbox One, the TV stream will start playing on your computer immediately. You can use the controls at the top of the window to control playback and switch between windows, as you normally do with other Windows applications.
If your Xbox One isn’t playing a TV yet, you can use an Xbox One controller connected to your PC to launch the OneGuide app, which allows you to watch TV. This Xbox One controller lets you switch channels and control playback just like on a TV.
How to stream a TV to an iPhone, iPad or Android phone
You can also use the Xbox One SmartGlass app to stream TV streams to a mobile device (iPhone, iPad, Android phone, or even Windows Phone). Install the app in the Apple App Store, on Google Play or in the Windows Phone Store (depending on the device used).
Open the Xbox One SmartGlass app on your device and sign in with your Microsoft account. After you do this, your device will recognize the Xbox One console on your current network. Select your Xbox One and connect.
To watch TV, simply tap on the “TV” tile in the SmartGlass app. You can then tap “Watch TV” on your device and watch TV, switch channels, pause, rewind, and fast-watch live TV
When you turn on your Xbox One, it will continue to play live TV on your TV and will also stream it to your phone. So you can watch the same TV stream in several places.
You can also use the Xbox One SmartGlass app as a remote control. Open the OneGuide area in the app. You can see what is playing and switch between the channels of your TV.
