Well, at the weekend, after over 3 years my Xbox came up with the dreaded 3 red rings of death.

Got on to the Microsoft site entered the Serial number, followed the instructions, and its now been sent away under warrenty grin

...any one done this recently? How long did it take them to get it back to you?

I also resorted to firing up the old PS2 - what an epic FAIL that was raftl

Long gone are the days when consoles were reliable and not built as defective.

Mind you, long gone are the days when consumers would not have been happy to "just put up with it".

You have to be subscribed to sky. If you sky subscription includes sky sports then yes, you can watch sky sports. You can get 1 months free trial, but you will need to purchase sky multiroom to get it permanently on your XBox.

Sky player on xbox is alright if you are already paying for it, but i wouldn't bother paying extra just for it.
