Rumor: Xbox Live TV Channel in Discussion

In January, we heard a rumor about ESPN creating a channel for Xbox Live. Now, it seems a similar rumor has risen up.

According to Bloomberg’s inside sources, Microsoft has been talking with former News Corp. President Peter Chernin about the possibility of a TV channel accessible through Xbox Live.

The content being suggested for the channel includes reruns of older shows and original content. This content would be geared toward a younger male audience.

It sounds like the channel would only be available to Xbox Live Gold Members. The inside source said, there were talks of a possible subscription fee increase if this goes through. He estimated about $1 or $2 extra per month.
