    So only way to watch ESPN 3 on the XBox is by way of XBox Gold membership? I have an Xbox (the black one) but not hooked up and no Gold membership. The Vandy/UT isn't available on Directv so maybe it might be on ESPN3. Might be worth hooking up.

    Yeah, the way I understand it you have to have a Gold membership.

    So before I "invest" in a gold membership again, how does it look on big screen HD? I have DSL...will that be fast enough?

    I was pretty surprised at the quality, actually. It's probably 1080p... not positive though.

    And you can usually find 'free 1 month' cards in games for xbl gold.

    I was somewhat impressed with the quality. Can't ask for much more, but there's no way it was 1080p.

    Those 1 month free cards are long gone in games now. It's all 48 hour codes now.

    The 360 used to (and may still) allow you to have three different 1 month free codes. I completely forgot how to activate them, but I used all of mine up... nearly three years ago.

    It depends on your connection the quality you get. Mine looked 1080p'ish.

    That would explain it then. My connection used to be perfect until everyone decided to move here and steal the speed away.

    So got a 48 hour gold trial and will check out the ESPN3 on Xbox. Hopefully my DSL is fast enough....

    Exclusive deal between Micro and ESPN which most likely means Microsoft threw a tonne of money at them to have it for the first 6 months to a year...like everything else it will come to the PS3 and be free.

    But the word is- xbl's price is increasing. Could be due to these ad-ons. PS3 can't offer as much and stay free...
