Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox One will support a variety of different inputs when it comes to live television.

Speaking after the launch of the Xbox One, Harvey Eagle, marketing manager for Xbox UK said the Xbox One was designed to cater for a variety of sources "whatever the technology, whatever the source". 

With the television experience being a large part of the Xbox One offering revealed at the Seattle launch event, it's still something of a mystery exactly how it will integrate with existing, traditional television systems. 

"We are trying to deliver incredible experiences in the living room," said Eagle, but hie did confirm that Xbox is "working to have multiple scenarios of live TV feeding in to the box".

Whether that means you'll be able to connect your Sky box, or your YouView box, remains to be seen.
