- Welcome to Up and Running with Xbox One. I'm Doug Winnie and I'm going to take you through how to get your Xbox One set up, connect it to the internet and to your digital television signal, and walk you through how to download apps, collaborate with others using Skype, and work with files on the internet. Oh, and maybe show you how to play a game or two. And while the Xbox One is an awesome gaming console, there is so much more to the Xbox than just playing games.

It really is the center of your living room and changes the way that you watch TV and work with streaming services all on a single box. So let's get comfortable, grab our controller, and get up and running with Xbox One.
