ReportTT: Microsoft and Sky in talks to sell subsidized Xbox One with satellite TV packages

Report: Microsoft and Sky in talks to provide subsidized Xbox Ones to satellite TV customers

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Jun 6, 2013 8:31 pm

Sky satellite TV customers could soon be able to pick up a subsidized Xbox One with new contract. Reports have surfaced that Sky and Microsoft are currently in talks to provide subsidized Xbox Ones with a Sky subscription package in the UK. These would likely come with a standard two-year contract.

The reports say that we could get confirmation of this as early as June 10 at Microsoft's pre-E3 press conference. It's worth noting that the Xbox One isn't a cable or satellite box. Users would still need to connect in their old equipment into the Xbox One, or at least in the US this would be required.

 

A subsidy could help boost sales of the next-gen console. Even though the price is still unknown, Amazon has it listed for sale for over $900. Using a subsidy to bring the price down to something a bit more reasonable would aid adoption.

 

We'll be in attendance of the Microsoft Press Conference on Monday and will bring you the full details as they happen.
