UK Sky packages priced for Xbox 360

15 GBP per month for starters

The Xbox Live Sky television service launches in the UK this week, and Microsoft have finally offered up specific details on the pricing of the new video content.

To use Sky TV on Xbox Live you'll need to be an existing Gold level Xbox Live subscriber, and at this point the basic subscription will cost 15 GBP per month.

The Basic Entertainment Pack includes GOLD, Sky Real Lives, Sky Arts 1, MTV One, Sky Sports News, British Eurosport, ESPN Classic, Sky News, National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild, History, Eden, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel and Nick Jr.

For an additional fee, users can also subscribe to Sky Sports and Sky Movies - while those users who already have a Sky package won't need to pay twice.

More on this shortly.
