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.”
