Microsoft adds ESPN programing to Xbox Live


How about some on demand college basketball on your Xbox? Microsoft and ESPN announced yesterday that Xbox Live users will be able to download ESPN programing, including college basketball, college football and shows like “Madden Nation.” Does that include “SportsCenter” or “Jim Rome is Burning,” I wonder. Shows will be available within 48 hours of their conclusion and will cost $2 for the standard def version and $3 for the HD version.

The question is, what sense is there in downloading games well after they’ve finished? Good luck avoiding the score for two days.
