Friday, 6th November 2009 19:54 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Microsoft has announced that Sky Player for Xbox 360 is now available to “100 percent” of the user base in UK and Ireland.

Here’s the statement:

As you may know we have been implementing a gradual rollout of the Sky Player on Xbox 360 service since our initial launch, and as of today, 100 percent of the Xbox base can access Sky Player, and tens of thousands of new users are accessing the service daily.

The quality of the service remains of the utmost importance to both Sky and Xbox, and as such we will run further testing over the weekend and continue to monitor the service closely.

    It is useless anyway.
    They only have a few channels on it.

    Is there a channel list anywhere? I’ve not actually seen much in the way of details on this.

    ’100 percent of the Xbox base can access Sky Player’

    Detract those without a Gold subscription and Sky subscription.

    That leaves about 40%ish??

    I haven’t seen it.

    Is it like the Sky Player on PC where you could only access live tv if you have a multi-room sub and if not you can only watch pre-recorded stuff (iPlayer style).

    Plus there are only a few channels and you can’t watch all the ones on your sub (stuff like Disney is missing).

    @ online.
    I took the free month trial.
    I have the family package on my normal sky.

    It is rubbish I tell you.
    24 channels in total.
    Some of them are sport and movies so if you don’t have that package knock another 6 off that list.

    Paramount or film 4 is not even on it.
