      Thats not quite as bad then, just need to have more stuff available to watch, there is virtually nothing if you dont have Sky Movies or Sports, thankfully I have Sports so its not too bad but Sky One is lacking, as fars as I see there is only crap like:

      Grease the School Musical
      Football Behind Bars
      Uk Border Force

      Where is stuff like The Simpsons, Modern Family, Futurama and things like that? Do we think that eventually they will be on there?

      Still no sky player here.

      Having the infrastructure to be 'any good' costs money, which unfortunately cuts into profit margins, and that's something that they won't countenance.

      Ho, and indeed, hum.

      Re: Sky Player on the Xbox 360

      Probably a silly question, but how where do you find the Sky Player to install it on xbox? I'm assuming it's just a case of it not being released to me yet, but since I don't know where I'd find it anyway I could just have missed it.

      I can't see it on the dashboard anywhere, and it's not in the video market place as far as I can see.

      I wish they'd hurry up & add more Sky One on-demand content. I don't care about the "Reality" or "Gameshow" categories, & have no interest in watching stuff like "UK Border Force". The US drama etc. is available on the PC Sky Player, why not the 360 one?

      When it becomes available for you to download, it will be in the Video Marketplace. If it's not there yet, then they haven't rolled it out to you yet.

      Re: Sky Player on the Xbox 360

      For download, it was in Inside XBOX section for me - first off it was the 'sorry it isn't available message' then when I checked about 7pm, it had changed into 'Get Skyplayer'. Once installed, it sits in Video Marketplace.

      How do you get this 'avatar view' with your avatar watching the screen?

      Re: Sky Player on the Xbox 360

      The 'roll-out' could be related to how long you've been a member xbox live. I only registered with xbox live last week - no sky player yet.

      It makes sense to give priority to long standing members, I suppose, while they go and buy some servers. Bearing in mind that they didn't have the bandwidth to cope with people simply registering, they'll be buying a lot of servers.

      Trust me guys, thus far you are missing nothing at all, they have barely updated the catalogue of stuff and all the stuff on there, especially the entertainment section, is rubbish. Would be good if I had Sky Movies though.
