ESPN today officially launched ESPN on Xbox LIVE, delivering the ultimate interactive experience for sports fans with live events from ESPN3.com, ESPN.com video-on-demand clips and sports highlights and other features on the Xbox 360 console. Xbox LIVE members are able to access the service via today's Xbox LIVE software update.

Xbox LIVE Gold members who are customers of an affiliated service provider will have access to thousands of live, global events every year via ESPN3.com - ESPN's 24/7 broadband sports network - including college hoops, college football and bowl games, basketball, baseball, top international soccer, tennis including all four Grand Slam tournaments, golf majors and more.

"Today's launch of ESPN on Xbox LIVE marks the beginning of a new way to serve sports fans that is truly innovative and social," said John Kosner, senior vice president and general manager, ESPN Digital Media. "This deal is the first of its kind for ESPN, and we're in a position with Xbox to enhance the gamer's experience like never before with live events, on-demand clips and more."

"We're proud to be partnering with ESPN to expand our ever-growing library of entertainment on Xbox LIVE," said Marc Whitten, corporate vice president of Kinect, Xbox LIVE and LIVE Services at Microsoft. "Our goal is to not only bring premium live sports content to tens of millions of people in the Xbox LIVE community, but also integrate rich social and interactive features into the experience so they can enjoy their entertainment with the people they care about, on the same couch or across the country. And for the first time, you will be able to control this entertainment using just a wave of your hand or sound of your voice with Kinect for Xbox 360, which launches on November 4th."

ESPN on Xbox LIVE is free for Xbox LIVE Gold members. Users of this service will be able to watch sports and events with full DVR control, pull up current scores while watching the game, easily switch between events and more.

· My Sports: Follow your favorite leagues for the season;

· Kinect for Xbox 360 Integration: Microsoft's new technology allows fans to control the content they watch with just their voice or wave of the hand.
