UPDATE: Sky/Xbox One rumours quashed

UPDATE: A Sky spokesperson has said: “We have no plans to sell Xbox hardware as part of a Sky subscription.

We look forward to continuing to work with them as part of our commitment to giving our customers more ways to watch Sky programming in addition to their Sky+ HD box. ”

What benefit is there to any Telecom retailer to partner with X-1 when they ALREADY sell their own DVRs. In Canada, we have a Rogers "Nextbox" even, which would not only incur name/ branding confusion, but already links to tablets, smartphones and does everything the X-1 does - it even has crap games that the casual audience can boot up on their televisions. That's the biggest cable provider north of the border too, so I don't see much success in pursuing any of these angles up here for MS.

They've painted themselves into a corner on this one.

More so when Xb1 isn't really a DVR. So far, it can only record game footage. Will only have a 500GB HDD.

...non-replaceable or user serviceable 500GB HDD that you also have to install all your blu-ray sized games onto.

@Blackdeath: that's what an external hard drive is for.

Note to microsoft

This is how you debunk a false rumour...unless of course the rumour is in fact true

cl19831752d ago

The only rumors I had heard was that just like us cable providers, the ability to route from cable box through the xbox one to control the cable box, but then again I'm not in the UK.

Projekt1752d ago

Yeah, it's the major satellite television provider in the UK.
