The new service will allow channels to be watched over a broadband internet connection, with no dish needing to be installed at the address.
It will also include some innovative linked-up features.
For example, several of your mates with Xbox Sky subscriptions will be able to join together and watch the same thing at the same time – either a TV programme or some on-demand content .
They will be able to chat over the audio headsets during the programme, much as they would while gaming.
The announcement was made at a press launch this morning so we’ll get full details to you when we have them.
