Sky Player To Receive Kinect Support At Launch

Good new for those Sky Player subscribers who own an Xbox and plan to purchase Kinect when it launches on November 10th in the UK. Sky have announced that the Sky Player client for the Xbox 360 will have full Kinect support at launch (in the UK at least). This will allow users to play, pause, rewind and fast forward using their voice. Hand gestures can also be used to control content in a similar way to that of Zune.

“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.”

I personally think that this is a natural progression and pretty soon we could see many more dashboard services having Kinect capabilities such as speech-to-text for services like Twitter and Facebook (just an idea).
