Microsoft is adding even more entertainment partners for Xbox Live. During their E3 presser, they announced that both the NBA and NHL will be delivering content through the service.
The addition of the NBA and NHL just add to Xbox Live's huge sports offering. Microsoft has been steadily adding partners over the past few years. Xbox 360 gamers can already watch MLB, NFL, UFC, and ESPN content.
The exact features for the NBA and NHL integration weren't announced at the presser. All we know thus far is that you'll be able to watch live games for each sport. Highlight footage and news updates will also be made available.
The NBA and NHL were the biggest "gets" for Xbox Live revealed today but not the only ones. Microsoft also mentioned that Nickelodeon, Paramount, Machinima, and Univision will all be providing entertainment content as well.
Furthermore, existing Xbox Live partners' content will be expanded. ESPN will now provide 24-hour programming from its television channels ESPN 1, ESPN 2 and ESPN U.
