Sky Player?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Sky Player?

Still waiting for the Sky player to turn up. Anybody else in the UK still waiting on this. The news from Microsoft and Sky is sketchy at best with talk of a phased roll out but no details.

Apparently if you have already downloaded the player you can still find it via the quick launch even if it has disappeared from the Video marketplace. Unfortunately I did not so this snippet was not much use for me.

Like you say I just go to recently downloaded section to use it. It's not meant to be used yet hence not on the dashboard until they update their servers to cope with the demand. I just can't believe they underestimated it's take up. It was so obvious it was going to be huge, at least initially.



Sky player has finally arrived. Looks nice and without registering I have only viewed the news channel and it runs smoothly, The EPG is a marked improvement over the pile of poop they make you use on the Satelite. I do have a good connection though which is I why I am actually more excited for the HD instant on streaming.

"...the best way to prepare [to be a programmer] is to write programs, and to study great programs that other people have written. In my case, I went to the garbage cans at the Computer Science Center and fished out listings of their operating system." - Bill Gates (Microsoft Corporation)

"Hey, Steve, just because you broke into Xerox's house before I did and took the TV doesn't mean I can't go in later and take the stereo." - Bill Gates (Microsoft Corporation)

Bill Gates had Mac prototypes to work from, and he was known to be obsessed with trying to make Windows as good as SAND (Steve's Amazing New Device), as a Microsoft exec named it. It was the Mac that Microsoft took for its blueprint on how to make a GUI.
