    When XBOX One first shipped, and had more of a media focus (which was the wrong call for the core audience of that product), the XBOX One team innovated with the OneGuide which allowed users to easily browse content from Live TV as well as any streaming app (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) as well as other media-centric apps (ie: shared photos from OneDrive) so you could easily browse content and not care which content is silo'd by which app/provider.

    It was a brilliant concept and a pretty well executed experience (which I'm sure would have been further refined and nearly perfected by now had the core audience been most interested in TV and Movie streaming).

    Apple TV, Roku and any other streaming service aggregator could learn a lot from what the XBOX One team pioneered.

      They’ve abandoned that original dream completely and more. No more media center of the house and even Kinect is dropped. With the Xbox app for PC those with PCs won’t even need to buy the next Xbox, they can play their Xbox games on PC. A lost decade for many ideas.
