    Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that its plans for Xbox One TV DVR functionality were "on hold." Microsoft may eventually launch the feature, but if you can't wait, Tablo today launched an app in the Xbox Store that lets you watch over-the-air programming and record it.

    During Gamescom 2015, Microsoft announced that the free TV DVR functionality was planned to launch in 2016. It was also going to work with the Xbox App SmartGlass app to allow users to schedule recordings on the go. Microsoft also planned for it to support Windows 10, allowing you to watch your recordings on a PC or any other connected device.

    Microsoft put its plans on hold because it wanted to focus on "new, higher fan-requested gaming experiences across Xbox One and Windows 10."

    CBS is owned by CBS Corp., which owns GameSpot.
