Report – Sky 360 player coming next month [Update]

Monday, 28th September 2009 09:46 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Digital Spy’s claiming that the last edition of Sky’s magazine’s revealed an October release date for 360′s Sky functionality in the UK.

The story’s based on the fact a URL published by the mag as a promo for the service contains the letters “oct”. It should be noted that this comes from the publication’s October issue.

No one’s contacted Microsoft about this. Maybe we will. Thanks, Blerk.

Update: The mag itself apparently says the update’s being released in October. Go nuts.

Update 2:
We’ve had this confirmed.

    I’ve got the actual mag now and there’s a little story in there which indeed says it’ll be arriving ‘in October’. No more details other than that, though.

    You still have to subscribe to Sky in order to get anything decent out of it, by the way.

    I was on the understanding it’s basically just a 360 skin for the Sky Player (16 channels). Not that this is bad, signed up for the Ashes and was impressed enough to keep it.

    Seems like there is a bit of confusion going on here, over at Microsoft Ireland have said

    “Microsoft does not comment on rumour or speculation. The Sky partnership will be launched in 2009, an official launch date has not been announced yet.”

    We will jsut have to wait and see i guess!!
