Default XBox 360 Sky Player launches

For UK users this is a big deal imho (especially since we don't have netflix).

There have been teething troubles at launch but once these are ironed out it is definitely an exciting development.

From GamesIndustry.biz:

Quote:
The Sky Player for Xbox 360 will allow Xbox Live Gold members to watch programmes from 24 different channels live, with an additional selection of on-demand channels featuring key shows from the past month as well as over 400 movies on offer from the current Sky Movies channels line-up.
Especially good news for me, as where I live I can't get a Sky dish.

No bite.

SKY's customer relations are a shambles. They failed to deliver, so I fail to give them another chance.

Its a nice Xbox service after checikng it out, but not sure why I'd use it over my Sky+HD box to watch programmes. I'm really surprised there's no HD on it.

Well.. short answer is that you wouldn't. But as you say it's a very nice feature if you have not got Sky yet, and it will give you acces to PPV and on demand stuff.

Very true, if you don't have Sky already its actually pretty slick. Its easy to use and find various programmes and movies on. The price is a bit high just for the basic tier...15 seems a bit steep.

Totally.

Even if I could give Sky another chance, I would not shell out 15. Not for the lack of HD.

This product has always sounded awesome, I keep hoping an equivalent comes to Canada.

I have the full Sky HD package and they want to charge me 98p for most of the episodes on History Channel?..... LOL No F'ing way.

It's a total con.
