Default Rumor : Microsoft in talks with ESPN to stream content on Xbox

Quote:
The New York Times reports that Microsoft has "held in-depth discussions" with the Walt Disney Company to stream ESPN programming through Xbox Live. According to anonymous sources, ESPN would provide live streams (like it does with the titularly similar though unrelated ESPN360) to subscribers for a fee. There is also the possibility that Microsoft may "create some interactive games in association with ESPN" ... as compared to non-interactive games?

The idea described sounds similar to that of the sports-heavy and UK -only Sky Player. While North America doesn't currently have a TV streaming application, it does have Netflix. If the Times' sources are on the money, it sounds like the ESPN offering would be a similar streaming app, not to mention the next step in an increasingly non-interactive battle for the living room.
