Xbox 360 Sky Player delayed a day Yesterday the much anticipated Sky Player for the Xbox 360 was launched for UK and Irish gamers and just as quickly Microsoft has taken down the service due to a "technical issue."
The company says they hope the service will be able to launch again tomorrow.

"The Sky Player on Xbox 360 service did successfully launch early this morning, it has subsequently been suspended due to an unforeseen technical issue,"
says Microsoft. "With so much excitement and interest in the service, we'd much prefer to ensure that our customers enjoy the highest possible quality of service.

"We would like to take this opportunity to apologise to our customers who have attempted to access the service today. Sky Player engineers are hard at work to resolve the problem - we expect to have the full service available tomorrow."
