This video will explain things:
ESPN360, the PC service. You’ll be able to watch live events – college football, NBA, MLB, whatever – through your console. All you need is an internet connection and an Xbox LiveGold subscription. No additional fees are required beyond the Gold membership.
Now combine these 2 things. ESPN will even take advantage of the new Kinect features of the Xbox 360. You’ll be able to see what team people are cheering for, replay particular scenes and play trivia games with your friends.
