Microsoft and UK's Sky magazine has announced that Sky Player TV will launch for Xbox 360 in the UK on 27th October.
For those of you who haven't heard about Sky Player TV, it is a monthly subscription based internet entertainment player that is dependent on Microsoft's Silverlight technology for encryption. It provides live and on-demand sports, movies, TV programming and documentaries.
Sky TV will arrive via a new update for the console, and will require an XBL Gold account in combination with a Sky TV subscription with a recommended 2mb broadband connection.
