Its better than netflix LOL

Yep I can now access the Sky player through my xbox and after watching a few programs i'm just gonna say it is brill.
There is a great selection of movies from Cleopatra (mum would love this) to recent hits like Iron man and YES THE DARK KNIGHT. There are simply over a hundred films to watch.

Sky player is Sky's on demand service available on the pc. BUT MS and Sky have come together and now I can watch some footie on the box lol.
IF I had a multi-room subscription or Sky BBand sub i could have had access to live channels through the box. Which could have meant while my mum and dad watch TV in one room i could watch the footie in another lol.
But I don't have ether so I have to settle with the on demand section which like I said has some great movies for free as well as a decent selection of programs.
