Broadband and digital TV provider Sky has revealed that the launch of its online broadcast platform via the Xbox 360's Live service did not go to plan.

The company has claimed that the addition of Sky Player to the platform was hit by a technical glitch, which means that many subscribers were unable to connect to it yesterday (October 27th).

However, hopes are high that the issue was just a minor setback.

In a statement, Sky said: "The service has been suspended due to an unforeseen technical issue.

"Sky Player engineers are hard at work to resolve the problem. We expect to have the full service available on Wednesday."

The Sky Player service was launched in December 2008 as an online subscription service and it provides access to a range of channels from the likes of the BBC, National Geographic and MTV.

It is to be launched on IP Vision's Fetch TV service at some point at the start of the next year.
