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.
