BSkyB deal rumoured on Xbox 360

Partnership could see Rupert Murdoch's Sky on Xbox Live

Rumours suggest that Microsoft could be about to announced a partnership with BSkyB for video content on the Xbox 360.

The exact nature of any deal is still unclear, but website Rapid TV News claims that the two companies have been seeking to cooperate for almost two years.

The site suggests that a full BSkyB service via a console is still some way off, but that Microsoft is still looking to make some content available in the near future.

Microsoft has a press event schedule for tomorrow entitled 'Experience the Vision', where the announcement is expected to be made. Microsoft already provides the technology for the BT Vision service, which is also due to be available via the Xbox 360.
