Sky and Xbox today announced a ground breaking UK first â€“ gestures and voice-controlled television. From 10 November 2010, TV will take a step into the future with the full integration of Kinect and Sky Player on Xbox 360.Â Controllable with gestures of your hand or using your voice, Sky Player subscribers will be able to quickly access up to 32 live TV channels and over 100 on demand programmes including movies, sport and a wide range of TV programmes.Â Selecting a favourite show, changing live channels, or easily scrolling forward and back through on-demand content is all made possible by a simple wave of a hand.
Kinect for Sky Player on Xbox 360 will also let viewers control TV with their voice to pause, fast forward, rewind and play content.
BSkyBâ€™s Sky Player service brings with it a vast array of channels and programmes that subscribers can view live or on-demand. The successful collaboration between Xbox and BSkyB continues to develop and grow – with over 1 million Sky Player application downloads on Xbox 360 since launch. The addition of Kinect functionality to the popular Sky Player service extends consumer choice even further, putting viewers in more control than ever before.
