Today was the official launch date of Sky Player for the Xbox 360 in the UK.
Sadly, it was not the celebrated event Microsoft and Sky were hoping for. When Xbox users logged in this morning, to use the service, all they could see was an error message reading “Can’t connect to the SKY Player Service. Error codes: 0C01/8009/0304".
Later, an Xbox tweet informed that they are aware of the issue and are said to be working on the problem. This is further backed by a statement on the Xbox support page containing this hopeful sentiment: “Sky Player engineers are hard at work to resolve the problem – we expect to have the full service available tomorrow.”
So there you have it. The answer to all your quandaries about today's Sky TV fiasco is to wait and see what tomorrow brings.
