US equivalent please

We'll trade you access to Sky for us getting Netflix, sadly same issues with licensing.

This is so over hyped. Nearly everone in the UK has a sky box which you get for free. The service offered on the xbox is more expensive with less channels available. My friend( one of the few people who does not have sky) was considering this but backed out when he saw the prices and just went for sky directly.



Is this one of a few steps to form a Newscorp- M$ alliance? They just started a conversation to not allow google to use one of Murdochs newspapers and others of his over 150 media-services, such as Wallstreet Journal and Sky. Only MS's bing will be allowed to use such medias.

None this is a UK and Ireland option only. I guess if you are saying what equivalent service Sky would be then that would be Cable, although this offering it limited to 24 live channels and on deman.

I want this but we have Virgin Media atm, maybe they'll strike a deal with them too in the future? I prefer Sky but I find V.Broadband better ... hmm


im with virgin media also, mabey some day they can incorporate VM into consoles.

i find VM a better deal, i looked at sky but chose virgin media, it more or less has all the great sky channels on it anyways, plus the VM broadband is pretty good.

although i wont be subscribing to the 360 sky package, i use the sky news feed which is handy, but another 3 weeks left till i get my 360 back:(



...not much time to post anymore, used to be awesome on here really good fond memories from VGchartz...

If you have Sky in your house then you can just use your username and password on xbox live and you can watch exactly the same channels from anywhere in the house but without having to pay any extra or fit another satellite box, wires/dish .

Far Far better than anything on any other console , worth  the £22 yearly Xbox live gold sub for this alone.

so if i have sky and give my password and username away, all my friends owning a xbox360 + xbox live gold can watch sky for free???

 

-impossible-

doh!  you/he clearly dont understand the deal.  and if he gets the sky then he can also access it via his 360.  no need for another box and no need foe wiring all over the house.



I'm not really here!
