ESPN Headed to Xbox 360
Over at the E3 conference it was just announced that ESPN would be headed to the Xbox 360. The offering will be free to Gold subscribers and is essentially ESPN3 (Previously ESPN360.com). It will offer 3,500 live or On-Demand sporting events at launch.
This should provide those of us who are sports crazed the opportunity to catch all the big games on our larger TV sets. Generally during the course of a season there always seems to be a game that isn’t available on TV but that has been available on ESPN’s streaming network. Additionally many sports fans that live away from home or from their favorite teams are often subject to local black outs or different TV markets. ESPN’s online network has always been a solution to this problem, but the downside is of course having to watch the game on a smaller monitor. This solution from Microsoft will allow those with an Xbox 360 and Gold subscription the ability to catch many of those same games on their big screen.
Still no word on Hulu.
