Sky appears to be open to collaboration with Microsoft, as the US software giant gears up to launch the Xbox One.
Microsoft's revamped console is set to offer a range of viewing features, with users able to switch between gaming and broadband-based TV.
Users are set to have access to a range of web-based features such as on-demand television content.
Speaking to Pocket-lint, a representative for Sky said the firm has "a long track-record of innovating with Microsoft on the Xbox platform" and will explore any future opportunities offered by Xbox One.
The news provider believes there could be a tie-in between Sky and Microsoft before the Xbox One launches later in 2013.
However, Pocket-lint says a link-up between Microsoft and YouView is less likely.
The set-top box vendor told the news provider that it has other priorities at present, including "internet channels, Android apps, and more".
