Report: Microsoft's deal with NFL is worth over $400 million

The Associated Press reports that Microsoft's new Xbox One partnership with the NHL, which is advertised as integrating live match streaming with interactive apps, comes with a hefty price tag.
Newsbrief: If you watched the Microsoft Xbox Reveal presser yesterday, you probably caught the section of the presentation devoted to Microsoft's new exclusive deal with the National Football League, which will involve an Xbox One app that integrates Skype, Microsoft SmartGlass, and viewing of NFL matches, with potential for real-time fantasy football features. You might have wondered what Microsoft was investing in such a partnership. The figure, as reported by the Associated Press on NFL.com, comes in at over $400 million, paid over five years. The Associated Press's source is speaking on condition of anonymity, and when reached for comment by Polygon, Microsoft said only:

We do not comment on rumors and speculation and we do not disclose the financial terms of our partnerships.
