"We enjoy a long track-record of innovating with Microsoft and look forward to the launch of NOW TV on Xbox One by summer next year," reads the statement.

"As a dedicated over-the-top service, we have prioritised the availability of NOW TV, to extend the reach of the service to the main TV.

"Looking ahead, we will also consider any future opportunities for Sky Go."

Xbox One entertainment apps expected to launch by spring include 4OD, LOVEFiLM, Netflix, Twitch and Machinima.

All apps have been built from the ground up for Xbox One, offering voice and gesture controls, as well as the opportunity to introduce exclusive Snap features and media achievements.
