Friday, April 16th 2010 by Cable.co.uk

Subscribers to Sky's digital TV packages have been given a chance to sample the firm's online broadcast service for free.

Bundle provider Sky is offering its digital TV subscribers the chance to try out its online broadcast platform for free.

The company, which also offers broadband and home phone deals, has revealed that all subscribers to its TV deals can access the Sky Player service without charge up until the middle of June.

Consumers with TV packs will need to subscribe to the certain channels, such as Sky Movies 1 and 2, to gain access to them through the platform.

A minimum 2Mbps broadband connection is recommended for using the service, while PCs must have Windows XP, Windows 7 or Vista. Sky Player can also be accessed through Xbox 360.

Details of the new offer have emerged after Sky also confirmed the platform is being introduced on Humax's latest range of high-definition Freeview set-top boxes.

The first system of its kind launched in the UK was released by the company in February.
