Sky and Microsoft announced today full Kinect integration with the Sky Player on Xbox 360.

It will be controllable with gestures of your hand or using your voice,  and Sky Player subscribers will be able to quickly access up to 32 live TV channels and over 100 on demand programs including: movies, sports and a wide range of TV shows.

“Selecting a favourite show, changing live channels, or easily scrolling forward and back through on-demand content is all made possible by a simple wave of a hand,” said the press release.

Kinect for Sky Player on Xbox 360 will also let viewers control TV with their voice to pause, fast forward, rewind and play content.

There’s been over 1 million Sky players so far, so enabling Kinect should prove to be very popular.

It will be made available in the UK starting November 10.
