Xbox 360 to get Sky TV in two weeks Microsoft has announced that its anticipated addition of BSkyB TV programming to the Xbox 360 will begin on October 27th in the UK.
Graeme Boyd, Xbox community manager for Europe, announced the news today via Twitter, with an "official" announcement set for next week.

The tweet said: "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."

The deal was first revealed at the E3 event, and will give access to current subscribers or new deals for non-subscribers. Pricing was not announced, but expect it at the "official" launch next week.

Why is it that X Box gets everything? Seems like it anyway. Hardly anyone teams up with Sony for anything. Sony's fault or just the console itself?
