We have just bought Sky again and I'm wondering what the situation with Sky on the Xbox is like? Do i have to pay extra? What is service like? Does anyone on here use it?

Cheers

Have to be a gold subscriber, but i rate it, good for watching in another room for sports.

yeah its good for watching. It depends on you sky package aswell as ya can only watch the channels from you subscription. I prefer to watch replays of tv shows on youtube nowadays. But not every1 will agree. depends what ya want to watch

I have it and it's great...works perfect except in the peak times where it goes a bit funny due to demand increase...good quality picture. I have a wifi connection on my 360 so it will work better if you have a Ethernet connection..

yeah thats true kwl147. mine is wifi aswell i don't know why like as my net box in right next to my xbox lol

You might also want to check what BB package you have through sky, If youre on sky connect BB then you,ve got no chance of watching/streaming anything at peak time as they throttle speeds to hell. im on connect and am unable to stream youtube or iplayer in the evening .

Mostly the comedy channels - Comedycentral essentially.

Can you watch the +1 shows on the Xbox? Or is it only a certain channels which is chosen by Sky?

I use wifi for my Xbox, and I use Talk Talk which I HATE! So slow, would this be a problem?
