E3 2010: ESPN3 Comes to Xbox Live

article-image

ESPN recently relaunched their online sports portal, and Microsoft has announced that it will be comming to Xbox live. Trey Wingo and Josh Elliott (funny SportsCenter anaylsts) demonstrated the service on stage at E3, and featured Microsoft’s new Kinect controller support. 3,500 live sporting events, instant replays, highlights, polls all at your fingertips or by the sound of your voice. The PiP feature will be very similar to the what is provided at the website online, but the HD streaming and Kinect as a controller should give it an overall new feel.

**The service is no addition charge besides the usual requirement of Xbox Live Gold is present; However, you must have TV provider / ISP that’s signed up for the package. If not then you  have to pay extra to receive ESPN 3.

Check the list of ESPN3 affiliates to see if your ISP is playing ball.

    Ok this sounds good, but then they shot themselves in the foot by saying:

    “*The service is no addition charge besides the usual requirement of Xbox Live Gold is present; However, you must have TV provider / ISP that’s signed up for the package. If not then you have to pay extra to receive ESPN 3.”

    WTF!!!!!

      @Machee:

      you just called me a “dumb ass” and a “bitch” LMFAO!

      Ok, I’m going to paste the paragraph here again:

      “The service is no addition charge besides the usual requirement of Xbox Live Gold is present; However, you must have TV provider / ISP that’s signed up for the package. If not then you have to pay extra to receive ESPN 3.”

      Now you said: Not a lot of people owns cable dumbass! Whats complicated about it? Turn on your 360, command your menus via voice recognition (yes we are in the future lol) and wala! i’am watching the World Cup, i could invite a friends to watch me with me! hows that bitch!

      Learn HOW TO READ AND COMPREHEND!

      In case your still lost I’ll make it simple. Its says

      “However, you must have TV provider / ISP that’s signed up for the package.”

      Now if someone didn’t have cable. I don’t think they would have XBL Live either. And If they do have XBL without cable. they would have to pay a extra fee to get ESPN3. NOW who in their right mind would by ESPN for XBL rather than spend $20-30 for basic cable Televison and have a variety of channels with ESPN’s 1 and 2.

      LOL! You should learn to think before you write or talk.
