I stumbled across the share to Xbox functionality on my surface RT after downloading an "Edge" episode. Utterly brilliant for downloaded material
I'd be surprised if this hasn't already been suggested, but a native Xbox app or apps for Microsoft's various video content would be something I would use often. I would rather watch content from TechNet and channel9 that is about demoing features (rather than reading code samples) on my TV than on my tablet or PC.
Alternatively (possibly better and easier) adding "play to' functionality to the Channel9 app would be great.
Who to suggest it to?.....
I think you're going to get that with the XBox One as it may run Windows Store Apps natively or with slight modification. There's a Channel 9 app in the Windows Store right now.
@Ian2: Don't forget SmartGlass. I use that all the time on either my phone or tablet and never even pick up the controller.
I'd like to, but I only really use my xbox as a media extender, and in that context, SmartGlass is horrible. There is no discrete way to move the cursor, so it becomes a game of chance to try and skip forward or open up a new tv show without accidentally deleting it.
