Microsoft dates Sky on Xbox Live

Microsoft’s Xbox community manager for Europe Graeme Boyd, otherwise known as AceyBongos, has revealed that Sky’s long-awaited Xbox 360 functionality will go live on October 27th.

In a Tweet just a few moments ago, Boyd stated: “October 27 – that’s the date when you’ll be able to watch TV from Sky on your Xbox 360. Channel line-up and pricing to come at launch.”

It is expected that only existing Sky subscribers will be able to access the service, though the chance remains that non-Sky customers will be able to join in the fun for a fee.

UPDATE: Wonderwallweb claims to have details of a retail bundle heading to shelves on October 27th (pictured). It contains one month's access to the Sky 360 player, three month's subscription to Xbox Live and a media remote – but no Xbox 360 console.
