Black Friday Deals Tracker is Live

Sky has struck a deal with Microsoft that will see live football, TV and film content being shown on the Xbox 360. This is Xbox'x first move into showing live broadcasted TV.

The other consoles on the market can only currently watch TV content from the BBC iPlayer service so this is a groundbreaking deal for Microsoft which puts it's console in a more favorable position.Sky channels will be available on the Xbox 360 from the autumn, but no specific line up or price has been announced yet. You will be able to watch live sport, programmes, on demand films etc without the need for a satellite dish or set-top box. You don't even have to be an existing sky customer.

Sky customers who have subscribed to premium content packages, or have multiple set-top boxes or one of the bigger broadband package could get content via their Xbox at a reduced cost.
