Sky Player May Come To PS3 And Wii In The Future

The director of Sky's On-Demand service Griff Parry has recently revealed that Sky is in talks with the other major console manufacturers about bringing their service to the PS3 and the Wii sometime in the near future. He had this to say about the matter:
"We are looking to extend distribution of Sky Player widely via partnerships with key players in key categories. 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. We have a relationship with PlayStation because we launched the PSP service (GoView) so I look at consoles, and there are a lot of them, and they are obviously connected to televisions and the internet."
I would not be surprised if the Sky Player service comes to the other major machines sometime in the future as Sky, like any other business, wants to expand and increase in profits (I'd know as I work for them). As to when this will happy is still unknown but with this already being looked into and proving a success on the Xbox 360 I would expect to hear something by the end of the year at the latest.
