Xbox Live subscription price to rise?

MS reportedly considering new TV show for service - for a price

Microsoft is reportedly mulling over the possibility of launching a new TV channel exclusive to Xbox Live subscribers.

The platform holder is discussing the idea with former News Corporation president Peter Chernin, according to Bloomberg.

Chernin, who runs his own production company, is said to have proposed the idea of raising the online service's monthly fee by up to $2 for access to the programming, which would feature original shows and re-runs.

We reckon there'd have to be some pretty impressive shows on the channel to convince XBL users to part with more cash for their annual subscription. Does it sound like a good idea to you, CVG readers?
