Microsoft is bringing on-demand and live sports streams to the Xbox One

Microsoft told us when it announced the Xbox One that it wanted to be at the center of the living room experience. For many people, sports are central to that idea. To better move into that niche, Microsoft has established a partnership with IPTV provider NeuLion,  according to a report on Polygon.

Xbox One users are set to receive access to live and on-demand sports content through Microsoft’s multi-year partnership with IPTV company, NeuLion. With Microsoft’s agreement to licence the NeuLion Sports Platform, Xbox One users will be able to view live 24/7 linear channels and on-demand sports broadcasts at up to 6 mbps per stream and at 60 frames per second, according to an announcement. Streams will also be integrated with real-time data for stats and highlights.
