      i have the app on my HDD can move/copy or delete it but how do i launch it?

      Edit* Never mind i found it. If anyone else is wondering how, press the xbox guide button, then quick launch, then latest downloads, and it should be in there!

      They've finally updated Xbox.com - the app is coming back today, with a phased rollout...

We apologise to all customers that have not been able to experience Sky Player on Xbox 360, we assure them that this is being rectified and we thank them for their patience.
      I've just checked my 360 again, & the Sky Player is now there

      Re: Sky Player on the Xbox 360

      Sky player has appeared again on my dash. But when I launch it it still says network error.

      Is this happenning to others? Or is it because I have not been "activated" by Microsoft to use it iyet.

      Thanks

      The 'solution' appears to be to deny access. Bravo.

      Perhaps they're waiting for someone to come back from Maplin with some new hardware.

      if the VOD is pay to watch they can indeed sod off.

      Oh well that's saved me buying gold membership then.

      Re: Sky Player on the Xbox 360

      Yeah I was thinking the same thing, if you have the mix required they surely cant make you pay for it again, I mean you're already paying for them! Just another way for Sky to bleed its customers dry. Got Sky Player working but having a few little niggling issues but will be ironed out. Any idea how often they are going to update the programmes available recorded?

      found out any VOD content is free for the first 30 days after air on TV then they charge 98p to rent it.
