Online TV service Sky Player has been included as part of the new Windows 7 operating system from Microsoft.

Broadband provider Sky has revealed that its platform has been added to the Windows Media Center software for UK customers, so people can watch content from the broadcaster for a monthly subscription fee.

Around 24 live streaming channels are currently available through the service, alongside an on-demand library of programmes and films.

Griff Parry, Director of On-Demand for Sky, said the inclusion of the platform on Windows 7 will provide "yet another innovative and attractive way through which to access a wide range of live and on-demand TV".

He added: "Whether it's an existing customer looking to get even more from their Sky subscription, or someone connecting with Sky for the first time through their PC, everyone can enjoy a high-quality online TV experience through Windows 7."

Sky Player is set to also be available for people with IP Vision's Fetch TV service at the start of next year.
