Sky, Twitter and Facebook arriving on 360 next month

Digitalspy writes: "The next Xbox 360 dashboard update will arrive next month.

The October issue of Sky Magazine states that the Sky Player will be available to download on the console.

The service will be accessible for all Xbox Live Gold members, but only Sky subscribers with the relevant movie and sports packages will be able to access premium content.

As well as live television, it will share features with the PC version of the player, allowing the availability of movies and on-demand content.

Microsoft has said that the next dashboard update will include social networking functionality, including Facebook and Twitter."

Will our 360 Avatars make use of all these new features?

Swoon3190d ago

Only with the Sky Player I think. You can go in parties and watch movies and tv shows together. Exciting!

kissmeimgreek3190d ago

with sky and an update to netflix that will allow it.

testerg353190d ago

Wow.. how weird.. PS3 fans in a 360 article. I guess integrated features is the same has having to navigate your way around the PS3s browser. Yes I have a PS3, but using it to browse is annoying.

tdrules3190d ago

i love plug n play keyboard/mouse support.

but i agree ps3 people shouldnt be in here

maniacmayhem3190d ago

The browser for PS3 is super a$$ I wouldn't use it to look at anything online.

ON TOPIC

This is cool, even though I probably won't be using any of these features.

S_Leonhart3190d ago (Edited 3190d ago )

LOL Twitter and Facebook IS ALREADY AVAILABLE IN PS3 WEB BROWSER FOR

FREE AND THE BOTS HAVE TO PAY $50 JUST TO USE IT LOL .

maniacmayhem3190d ago

Well actually it's not for free on PS3, you still have to pay for it through your internet service provider.

I have to pay Comcast to use Facebook on my computer.

ReviewsArePolitics3190d ago (Edited 3190d ago )

Because apparently none of them have a PC so finally they can open a facebook account, even though they have no real friends, so all their pictures will be of them, the TV and a few gamertags.

"I have to pay Comcast to use Facebook on my computer. "

You also have to pay Comcast to connect your 360 to the net, not to mention an additional fee to play online. The funny thing is, Microsoft just sold 2 million suckers a map pack and a 5-hour borefest for $60 bucks. Is that all they have to play that can't be played anywhere else? how sad

People pay for Xbox Live Gold, to get a premium online experience.

No lag, or random disconnections for no reason, no errors when trying to sign in despite having a perfect connection. For premium features such as the amazing Party System and being able to manage your account complete both from the 360 and the Xbox.com website, as well as real time updating for things like the Gamercard, on any website or forum you may be displaying it.

If you really cant afford to pay a mere £30 a year for a MUCH, MUCH better online gaming experience, then I feel sorry for you :( get a job :)

Online gaming was terrible on the PSN for me, especially third party games like COD.

"Well actually it's not for free on PS3, you still have to pay for it through your internet service provider. "

But what's the point since everyone has to pay to use the internet. We say it's free to use these applications because we don't have to pay any subscription.

Do we have ourselves a new butt hurt loser to look forward to in all 360 articles? Fvck you're sad. Go play a game!

Who the fvck would pay a Live subscription for only Twitter and Facebook? If you already have Live (like most of us.. duh) then what exactly is the problem?

I thought you owned both consoles? That comment indicates you no longer own a PS3. So much for 'universal gamer'.
