It appears to have been taken down. Must be to iron out a few of the problems that a lot of people seem to be having. Not quite the big launch they were hoping for I'm guessin.

Sky's multiroom requirement for Sky Player has been around for some time on the PC-based service so it was never going to be free on Xbox. You can access some content on demand through the Xbox for free, but again I think this is tied to what channels you currently subscribe to.

If you have to pay full price for the subscription why wouldn't you just buy the satellite too... still I guess it another thing that the PS3 doesn't do so the fanboys will be happy... On a similar note does anyone know if 4OD is planned for the PS3 in the way that the IPlayer is implemented that would be cool

Are you *****ing kidding me!?!
We already have a £25 a month Sky subscription, and I have Xbox Live Gold and I STILL have to pay another fee on top of it. No. Just no.
