It's a good deal if you already own Sky but a little dissapointing if you don't. This looked like a promising service (for me personally) when it was first mentioned as I can't have a Sky dish at my flat and so this would be the perfect way to get the Sky Sports package (I miss cricket and football ). Unfortunately the subscription price and channel availability put my off. I'm sure they will develop it in the future and if more channels get added then I might be pursuaded to go for it.


so it isn't £15 a month for footy/sport and movies.....just the basic package

Lets undertand this. the £15/ month is if only payable if you have Sky already with no multiroom. If you have multiroom already there is no charge apart from being on Live Gold.

Now if you dont have Sky, you need have Broadband, Live Gold and what you pay to Sky is what you would normally pay for whatever package you want. I'm guessing you have Broadband. So all you need is to choose your package and pay £48/year for Live Gold.



Here are some links and more acurate info.

http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/skyplayer/

You get 21 channels on your 360 free, wih no charge. All you need is your free Sky ID for existing Sky customers. Channels include all the Sky Sports and ESPN 1 and 2.

If you want to watch all Sky channels that you have on your subscription you need to have multiroom or Sky Broadband Unlimited. Or if you dont have these you can pay £5/month and access all the channels from your 360.

http://skyplayer.sky.com/aboutskyplayer/live-tv.html

And here is the link if you dont have Sky, and you want it for your 360. As you can see it is the same as normal Sky prices. £41/ month for example gives you ALL Sky channels available in there packs from your 360 Sky player.

Subscription cost is identical to normal Sky. Channels are upgraded daily not futurely. :)

Just been looking at some of the options and £25 for Sky Sports 1 (which I think covers all football and cricket except the ESPN games I think) and the entertainment package isn't too bad. Has Sky One been added yet? I think that and a couple of the comedy channels are the only things missing I would really want.



yes thank you,i understand it now,

basically,if you already have everything,then it's a nice little bonus,

or good for a multi-room equivalent....

I posted the links in my previous post. Dont be fooled. You can watch everything on Sky Player. You just have to follow the correct deal you want. If you have Sky already £5 would get you all the channels on your 360. Otherwise you just get 21 with just using your Sky ID. Have a look. The menu system on 360 sky is awesome. And you can watch with your friends like you can with HD films off Live. Awesome.

Or if you dont have Sky at all, you can get everything Sky offers normal boxes but with no dish and no wires. You can record, and also a few bonuses that M$ provide like watching with friends like you can with HD films from Live.
