Microsoft is in negotiations to bring ESPN's sports coverage to the Xbox 360, according to the New York Times.
The newspaper reports "people close to the talks" as saying subscribers would pay a fee to watch live streams of sporting events. ESPN already offers a similar service via internet service providers. Microsoft could also develop games with ESPN, according to the sources.
There's no word on whether the deal is definitely going ahead, but one source said it isn't "imminent". Any such deal may be exclusive to the US anyway, like the Netflix movie service. And here in the UK, we've already got the Xbox 360 Sky Player deal - take THAT America, how are you going to watch soccer and cricket now? Oh.
