Sky Player to get Kinect support

Gesture telly ready for launch

Microsoft's set to introduce gesture-based Kinect support to Xbox 360 Sky Player when the peripheral launches later this year.

The Kinect Sky service will launch on November 10, day and date with the 360 motion camera, the platform holder's confirmed.

"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," it says.

Voice command however hasn't been confirmed as yet, which is probably for the best as we don't fancy vocal channel-wrestling with our other halves.

The first Kinect TV ads appeared online this weekend.
