Xbox One 50hz TV bug will be fixed in a matter of weeks, says Microsoft
Live TV bug to be quashed long before the Football World Cup.
Microsoft will soon fix a major Xbox One fault that has affected the machine's ability to accurately play UK and European PAL television signals, the company has confirmed to GameSpot.
The 'juddering' fault, which is caused by the Xbox One's 60hz refresh rate clashing with the 50hz signal used by many major TV providers, such as Sky and Virgin, will be fixed this Spring.
"I can't give you a precise date, but it is just a matter of weeks before that will get fixed," Xbox UK marketing boss Harvey Eagle said to GameSpot, reiterating that the problem will be resolved long before the Football World Cup kicks off in June.
The update will rollout as part of an Xbox One system update, although Microsoft has not said how it will specifically solve the issue.
Microsoft today also announced that the UK will receive a £30 price cut to the Xbox One, and that the company will also be throwing in a free copy of Titanfall while stocks last.
