Sky Player, launched this week on the Xbox 360, may come to the PS3, according to Sky.

Speaking to, Sky's director of On Demand Griff Parry said: "It [Sky Player on PS3] may very well happen in the future."

The battle lines have been drawn in the war for console-owning TV watchers.

Sony's PS3 currently offers access to the BBC's iPlayer for free. The Sky Player is available to Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers who also have a Sky subscription.

When asked if Sky was actively trying to make available the Sky Player on PS3, Parry replied: "I can talk generally about our desire to extend to any device that supports a good quality experience to project the content. The PS3 is clearly a device where that is possible. And so it may very well happen in the future. Having said that, we're very happy to be working with Xbox for the time being."

What say you PS3 owners? Would you like to see the Sky Player come to your console? Let us know in the comments section below.

Watched most of the Arsenal match on it today, it wasn't that bad. Had to buffer a couple of times and there was a few minutes delay between the TV feed and the 360 feed but no major complaints. Quality was like watching a good internet feed.

It was a technical issue in that technically no bugger could connect to the sky servers.

you have to pay for it.

thats why they took it off XBL......because no-one bought it lol.

i think their re-considering their prices since xbox users already pay £40 yearly for XBL.

technical issue.......yh right....

To be honest i don't care either way. I've never used the BBC Iplayer on my PS3 and probably wouldn't use a Sky Player either.

All of them work on PS3, or should, through the browser. Since getting rid of Sky and stopping giving them stupid amounts of money I've been far happier with Freesat HD instead and the online services from the main channels if I need to catch up anything that I didn't already record.

There's too much on Freesat for me to watch without paying for anything else.

Do they just work anyway (BBC Iplayer has always worked on the PS3) I tend to record stuff on my freeview box.

That would be nice. We could get rid of TV aerials and satellite dishes altogether and just have a console (or two) sitting under our TV's hooked up to the internetz.

I really dont care, I have a sky box, and so cant see any appeal in using a games console to watch tv. I'll stick to games thanks.
