We've been waiting a while, and now Xbox 360 has finally launched after technical difficulties forced Sky to pull the service yesterday.

Sky Player offers both subscribers and non-subscribers the option to watch Sky content in a variety of places. Initially launched as a competitor to the, the service has everything from news to sport and movies. It's one of the best commercial services we've seen, easily beating the offerings from Channel 4 and ITV in both quality and programme selection.
It doesn't come cheap though, with a basic service starting at around £15, and the maximum package going up to £32. There's no HD content either, which we think is a missed opportunity, given the 360's HD skills. If you're a Sky subscriber you get the benefit of the service for free, as long as you have a multi-room subscription or Sky Broadband Unlimited.
At £32 for a full subscription, we can't help think it might be better to just subscribe to Sky normally, and get this thrown in for free. But then that's probably what Sky wants...
