Sky News comes to some Xboxes.

8 September 2014

xbox one square Sky is launching a Sky News app for Xbox on Tuesday!

You'd be wise to hold off ordering the catering for the spontaneous street party for the time being, as it's only going to be for Xbox 360.

But why this app apartheid, Sky, WHY?

"We are continually looking at other connected devices in the market but don’t have any firm dates yet."

Sky reckons the app will help it get more viewers in the US, as it's less accessible than in its UK home.

Head of Sky News Digital, Andrew Hawken, said, "Sky News is consistently exploring opportunities to expand our global reach. Making Sky News available on Xbox was an ideal way to achieve this. With a growing US footprint of a million users and a US news team, we’re thrilled that our coverage will be showcased to millions of Xbox customers."

So, Xbox 360 ravers, go and knock yourself out eh? Kay Burley wants to shout at you through your screen, possibly about how Xboxes are likely to cause the kind of rare brain cancer that turns you into a Royal Family hating murderer or something.
