Sky Player Landing On PS3 and Wii

May 25, 2010Written by Christopher Gordon-Douglas

Sky Player was announced and launched exclusively for the Xbox 360 in 2009 and hit success on Microsoft’s online service, but could that be about to change with Sony and Nintendo having a piece of the pie.

In a recent interview with Tech Radar Sky’s Director of On-Demand, Griff Parry, has stated that they are “in talks” to bring the on-demand service to other games consoles.

“We are looking to extend distribution of Sky Player widely via partnerships with key players in key categories,” said Parry, when asked about the potential for Sky Player on Wii and PS3.

“Games consoles is obviously one of those key categories, so what you would expect is probably true. We are engaged in talks to explore opportunities, but we are very happy in our relationship with Microsoft.

“We are absolutely not finished with Xbox and aim to make the experience richer and richer and continue innovating.”

Sky’s also have previously worked with Sony and the PSP when they released Go!View which was a video download service powered by Sky.
