Chernin Said to Discuss Creating Xbox TV Channel

Microsoft Corp. and former News Corp. President Peter Chernin have discussed creating a television channel for users of the Xbox video-game console, said two people with knowledge of the proposal.

The channel would be exclusive to subscribers of Microsoft’s Xbox Live video-game network, said the people, who sought anonymity because the talks are private. At an April 12 meeting in Redmond, Washington, Chernin suggested raising Xbox Live’s monthly fee by $1 or $2 to add programming aimed at the online service’s young, male target audience, one person said.
