      depending on the cost, may be an alternative to multiroom?

      Looks true Microsoft signs deal with Sky to show TV programmes on Xbox 360 - Telegraph
      I suspect it may have something to do with an expansion of "Anytime"

      Continental drift moves faster than MS support for non US content. NXE has largely been a waste of time, you pay more for less content than the US and if this is anything like the last time I looked at Sky Player even though you had multiroom of the Sky World package you still had to pay more to watch football (it was something like that :P).

      Anyway more info would definitely be appreciated.

      The way you view television is set to change forever as Xbox announces an incredible deal bringing Sky TV to the Xbox 360.

      The Sky Player, Sky TV’s online service, launches on Xbox LIVE this autumn, bringing with it a vast array of channels and programming that you can view live or on-demand. The ink is barely dry on the deal and we’re still finalising the full line-up, but you can reckon on accessing blockbuster movies, Premier League football, absorbing documentaries and the very best of music, the arts and must-see entertainment shows for all the family – all delivered direct to your Xbox 360 without the need for a satellite dish or any other kind of separate plug-in device. A broadband connection is all that’s required.

      If you’re new to Sky prepare to be dazzled by the choice of live channels and premium content, all of which are available via a choice of subscription packages or on a pay-per-view basis. Existing Sky customers will enjoy the obvious benefits of having an alternative and, we might add, highly versatile way to enjoy their favourite shows.

      It's also been posted on the BBC Technology News section:
      BBC NEWS | Technology | Sky puts content on Xbox console

      Sky's channels will be available on the Xbox 360 from the autumn, but no specific line-up or pricing details have been given.

      Users of Microsoft's Xbox Live online service on the 360 in the UK and Ireland will be able to watch Sky's live sport, programmes, catch-up TV and on demand films, without the need for a satellite dish or set-top box, or to be an existing Sky customer.

      Reduced cost?

      Sky's commercial group director Stephen Nuttall hinted there could be deals for some current Sky subscribers.


      'It's a compliment and alternative to the existing methods of experiencing Sky's content'
      Stephen Nuttall, Sky

      Sky customers who have subscribed to premium content packages, or have multiple set-top boxes or one of the bigger broadband package could get content via their Xbox at a reduced cost.
      By 'bigger broadband package' does it mean like Mid and Max?

      I like the "reduced cost" bit, as I pay Sky 57 a month I would expect it to be at significant cost drop otherwise what's the point?

      looks like their plans with BT have failed so their looking for a new partner.

      MS don't get the UK market and they wonder why people aren't using their service.

      Some screenshots here Sky dishes up iPlayer-style service for Xbox 360 ? Register Hardware

      Do Sky see this as a route to new subscribers or a way to get existing subscribers to take additional services? I don't have an X-Box, so it isn't obvious to me if this is a significant improvement in availability.
