The update should however see you be able to pause and rewind video using your hands and voice. Users will be able to use Kinect to control Sky Player from November 10.
However, users will still need both a Sky subscription and an Xbox Live membership to access the service as well as a minimum download speed of 2Mbps.
Those without the Sky satellite service can still subscribe for £15 per month. The Kinect controller is priced at £149.
