The Sky Player service, which allows Xbox Live Gold account holders to watch certain Sky satellite programs live and on demand via their Xbox, is to receive full Kinect support from launch - allowing full motion and voice control of the player.

Microsoft's motion control and sensing device has been officially priced at £130 and will hit shops in the UK on November 10, 2010. Basic Sky Player packages are available from £15 per month.

"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," said Microsoft's press release.

"Kinect for Sky Player on Xbox 360 will also let viewers control TV with their voice to pause, fast forward, rewind and play content."
