Sign up on the sky player website:

http://skyplayer.sky.com/vod/page/default/home.do

When you go to subscriptions it gives the option for promo/prepaid codes. Stick in 'xboxskysports20'. You pay the full €30 for 3 months up front.

Once your signed up though you can cancel straight away so you wont be charged more after the promotion period.

When I stick in the code xboxskysports20 it is accepted but the offer is €30.16 (reduced from €52) per month for the first 3 months.

Do you need to already have the basic sky player package to only pay €10 per month?

Think i jumped the gun on this promo. I had gotten it off xbox.com:
http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/skyplayer/
where it said '£20 for 3 months' but the sky player site says £20 per month. Can a mod delete my posts?

Sky Player is a bit pants if you're watching it on a computer. The whole service crashed under the strain of the Ryder Cup and the Arsenal v Chelsea match. Tried to watch both streams at the same time and it rejected the 2nd login. They have an apology up on their blog: http://blogs.skyplayer.sky.com/annou...5-7309bbb615a7

Also if you use it on the web it registers you as a new device everytime. It only allows 4 different devices per month, so if you want to watch it more than 4 times a month you can't. Because I lost internet connection during viewing, I got a new IP which the player sees as new device. So I'm locked out of it now I until the end of the month. What a farce!

I had problems yesterday too but with regards the 4 devices issue during the ryder cup yesterday as well but I just removed some of the devices in the device management menu. It does seem like a bit of an issue though that it adds a new device every time.

Hi,

This should sort it for you, what browser are you using? I use Chrome with no issues, but have a read of this post and try what it suggests

Thanks. Nothing really helps on that thread but I uninstalled Silverlight and reinstalled it again so hopefully that will work. I hope so anyway because I want it to watch the Ireland game tonight.

This is what it says when you sign in via the skysports website

Sky Sports TV Live
Free for Sky TV Sports Pack subscribers until 31 December 2010.
Free for Sky Player TV Sports Pack subscribers.


Does this mean if you will start to be charged for Sky Player if you use it from next year even if you pay for multi-room in your house already? want to know cause i use my mates account who is away in canada and dont want charges to appear on his parents account.
