Sky television is finally coming to Xbox One, which has been without a Sky app since it launched two years ago. The app will be available soon, according to Xbox UK marketing director Harvey Eagle.

"Sky TV is in development and is coming soon to Xbox One," Eagle told Techradar, which was unable to get him to commit to a release date or window. The app will allows Sky subscribers to view movies and TV on demand as well as watch live television via their Xbox One.

The Sky app has been available on Sony's PS4 since December 2014, but has been absent from Microsoft's latest console. The app was very popular on the Xbox 360, leaving many users annoyed that it didn't transfer to the Xbox One sooner.

On a PS4, the app requires a Sky Go Extra subscription at £5 a month on top of an existing Sky package, which allows the app to be used to watch live TV, the catch-up service and use the Sky Store. It is likely to be the same case with the Xbox One app when it is eventually released.
