Sky and 360 Hoping For 2nd Time Lucky

by on October 28, 2009

Hoping to enjoy some sky tv on your xbox 360? Well the service launched yesterday but was soon pulled due to technical difficulties and should be re-launched today.

“The service has been suspended due to an unforeseen technical issue.” Sky said in a statement.
“Sky Player engineers are hard at work to resolve the problem. We expect to have the full service available on Wednesday.”

If you wish to watch sky on your 360 you will need an xbox live gold membership and a sky subscription with multi room or unlimited broadband. Alternately if you do not currently have a sky subscription you can become one with the basic package starting at £15 a month with no set top box or installation needed.

-Update- There is a new update for the 360, however the sky player does not seem to be available yet.

It turns out the mandatory update is to enable WPA 2 support for the 360 wireless adaptor.

The Sky Player can now be downloaded from the video section of xbox live.
