The Xbox One in the Sky

Or Sky TV more precisely.

Sources familiar with company plans have informed games industry magazine MCV that the box could include a Sky satellite tuner or act as a video recorder in the future, but we’ll also follow suit and suspect only the latter is more probable. The subscription from Sky could well be centred around an Xbox One and pre-installed Now TV or Sky Go application. Couple this with SmartGlass support and you’ve got a winner.

Microsoft want to own the living room. So why not replicate the subsidy model used in mobile to gain an advantage over the Playstation’s, Nintendo’s, and mythical Apple TV 2’s of the world?
