Xbox One to Get DLNA Streaming in the Future

January 7, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are both capable of streaming downloaded content from the PC, but neither of the next-gen consoles has that capability yet. According to Microsoft’s Major Nelson, DLNA streaming to the Xbox 360 was not widely used, so they plan to work on making it more appealing before they bring it to the Xbox One.

Those people who did make use of DLNA streaming are irritated that their older consoles can do it while the newer ones can’t. It feels like a step backwards. So far, it can only be accomplished through awkward workarounds, such as connecting the Xbox 360 or PS3 to the Xbox One, which reduces the quality and functionality.

Both Microsoft and Sony have promised that DLNA streaming support will come to their new systems in the future, but neither has provided a solid date. For fans who frequently stream content to their consoles, it had better be sooner rather than later.
