      Your gonna need atleast 8Mbit download to use the Sky service and the HD Video streaming service according to MS.

      I'll be ok as I have managed to get Virgin Broadband connected up.

      Re: Sky Player on the Xbox 360

      Hey

      Why is the Sky Player only accessible through xbox live?

      Doesn't it make sense to add it to Media Centre with the rest of music and video on peoples networks?

      Thanks

      Most likely as MS wanted to showcase the Xbox 360.

      MS made a similar deal with BT last year to turn the Xbox into a BT vision box.

      And the fact that premium content can be billed via the Xbox marketplace, makes more sense to MS who need to sell consoles.

      Re: Sky Player on the Xbox 360

      its a shame as i use the xbox media centre for all my video and freeview so getting sky player is a no brainier as ill have everything running through one box

      just a slight pain that i will have to exit media centre and go into xbox live

      would have been great to have it all in one app

      You will be able to play it on a PC by changing the Region of the player. To do this open the Properties of the DVD drive in the Device Manger, click the Region tab and select the region you want. You are allowed 5 changes, then it is fixed. Two DVD drives are useful if you get a lot of disks from America/Canada, one can be set for region 1 and one for region 2.

      If you do choose to use a PC, you can just get software to bypass region coding. No worrying then about running out of changes on the drive.

      Playing DVDs on a 360... as mentioned, the 360 is region locked for DVDs.



      As for the Sky Player coming to the Xbox 360 though...

      October, apparently (it's mentioned in the latest Sky mag).

      Re: Sky Player on the Xbox 360

      From that link, it does look as if I will be able to use the 360 in the bedroom to watch sky on as part of my normal subscription.

      If thats the case thats good.

      Although I'd rather use a normal sky box, much less chance of it going wrong.
