Xbox Live: Soon to be streaming ESPN live?

Yesterday news broke that Microsoft and Walt Disney Company are in talks to allow streaming of live sporting events from ESPN over Xbox Live and the Xbox 360. With news breaking at CES that the Xbox 360 would soon be able to be used as a set top box for AT&T U-Verse service, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise. I think the potential exists to make this work, but it would ideally be within the existing framework of the Xbox Live fee, or with a very small monthly premium. I can’t see many people paying double to stream ESPN through their console if they already get it through their primary Cable/Satellite source.
