I'm still curious to see how sky pans out.

I don't know why you'd want to max out your broadband trying to download stuff when you can just get a sky+ box that does a better job for probably the same price.

id rather pick up the tv remote, change input to sky plus and not worry about my broadband connection.

i can find nowhere on the net that says that sky on xbox is free. all says its going to cost money.

Where is it 100+ for a sky+ box?

If it's free for current sky subscribers that's a bonus, it's an extra tv to view it on if you really want to.

Charging for it though I can't see how they'll market it over a sky box, which is free and about 20 quid a month for a base package.

If its free I'll buy a second hand xbox and replace the multiroom subscription I have, and then I'll create a Paul_J style YouTube video to inform everyone how to make a massive saving.
