    Default sky player on xbox360

    so after the debarcle of overloaded systems and demand - has anyone else got it up and running ?

    quite impressed with the buffer time/quality and 300+ movie selection at present
    just cant understand why when you download it its not a page but stored like a games demo

    so anyone else liking this or are you still waiting to download it

    that's the thing it comes up as a demo/download - and appears to have dissapeared again - had a message/email saying they were sorry for the crash owing to ovewhelming demand- and that there going to roll it out a bit at a time

    maybe i was just fortunate that i managed to download the programme first time

    I downloaded this on Tuesday morning and by the afternoon it had gone, and there was a notice saying sky player coming later today, I went into recent downloads and downloaded it again, works ok now, the party view with the avatars is quite funny

    Maybe the sky player problems will prompt them to do more previews to help iron out problems, The facebook, last.fm,Zune and twitter preview is good..

    it only costs if you don't have a Sky package already?, i've linked my Sky+ HD account, and watched almost everything for free so far..

    I thought this may be an inexpensive way to enjoy some new content. wrong. first, i need
    a gold account. no thanks. second, as i don't have sky, i need to pay some stupidly high subscription fee. i think not. i only saw the "demo" channel (sky news) but the quality was very poor, with a low frame rate to boot. for a laugh i changed the quality from "high" to "low", and took a trip back to 1990, for it looked like VHS. avoid.

    Maybe you get a better frame rate if you have Sky+ HD, but either way no picture quality problems here, and totally free for me to use on both 360's as i have no issues at all with paying £0.58p a week for Gold.. Very impressed with Sky player and Facebook, Twitter, Zune (1080P streaming films) & Last.fm (streaming music)

    Sky player is the same picture quality as the BBC iplayer on my PS3 aswell.. Well happy with both, only you pay a lot more in TV licence fees to fund the BBC's iplayer whether you use it or not and not so many channels to choose from
