    January 18, 2010 - The New York Times reports Microsoft has held discussions with the Walt Disney Company about a programming deal that could see live sporting events streamed through Xbox LIVE.

    Citing anonymous sources close to the talks, the report also states Microsoft could create sports titles that would interact with the ESPN service.

    "For a per-subscriber fee, ESPN could provide live streams of sporting events, similar to the ones available through ESPN 360, a service that is available from some high-speed Internet providers," the story reads. "Microsoft could also create some interactive games in association with ESPN, the people said, although a deal has not yet been struck."

    When asked about this report, a Microsoft representative told IGN the company does not comment on rumor or speculation.
