ESPN Streaming Comes to the Xbox 360 ESPN 360 Streaming Service Subscriptions to be Unveiled Soon?

While the Wii has only a Netflix streaming deal so far, and that s
fairly new too, the Xbox 360 seems ready to move to the ne
xt level. The gaming console might not be just a gaming console anymore.
Microsoft plans to let Xbox 360 owners stream content from ESPN which is
definitely great news to sports lovers.
Not only will they be able to play all the sports they want on a hot
console that s about to get motion control later this year but they ll
also be able to watch their favorite sports streamed straight to their
Xboxes.
Microsoft is said to be in talks with the Walt Disney Company in order
to seal the ESPN deal. A new Xbox 360 streaming service could emerge
soon, the ESPN 360. Available from high-speed Internet providers, the
new streaming service will let you watch ESPN live all for a monthly fee.
The specific costs and the names of the providers are still a mystery.
According to sources involved in the negotiations the deal is not yet
imminent so it might take a while until Xbox 360 fans will be able to
check out ESPN 360 whenever they get bored from all that extensive game
playing.
In the following years we will probably see the transformation of the
console into something a lot more powerful than a simple gaming device.
Capable of offering lots of multimedia services, the consoles will draw
the attention of large networks which will want to bring as much content
as possible to those connected living rooms. And where s content there
will be commercials which means that large corporations will definitely
be interested into advertising inside this newly created ecosystem.
Where will it all stop? We can t really say but we ll be here reporting
how the Xbox 360, the Wii and the PS3 become the home entertainment
weapon of choice for many consumers. What do you think about this new
emerging trend?
