    Sky.com has created a version of Sky Player which runs on the OSX platform. It requires Microsoft Silverlight, and runs in Safari at skyplayer.sky.com

    The service free to Sky Multiroom or Broadband Max customers. Other sky customers can subscribe to sky player multiroom for £9.75 monthly. The channels available are linked to the existing subscription.
    Non Sky Customers can subscribe to a sky player TV subscription. 3 packs are available for between £7.50 and £30 (increases to £15 to £34 in Feb 09)

    Unfortunately sky player is not available on the iphone as it requires Microsoft Silverlight; but with hints of an iPhone version of the viewer in the future, hopefully it will not be too long...

    That's annoying you have to be either a multi room or broadband customer to use the service...

    Sky TV on Mac OS X

    It's a rip-off..... yes it works - sort of - but to pay for a subscription if already a subscriber to Sky services, so that you become "Multi-room" when you are not using any of their equipment is a rip-off. Also to find that the channels you have available to you are severely restricted is a very bitter pill to swallow.

    Why would you need Multiroom or Broadband packages.

    Sky is really getting quite pants now. Anyone get their Sky Mag? Such hyperbole. Every different show on every page has a cookie cutter quote of "And you can see more detail of this with Sky HD". It's supposed to be a kind of TV guide not irrelevant BS flogging another service.
