ESPN has revealed that it is holding discussions with Web TV services to offer its network online, Bloomberg reports.

John Skipper, ESPN’s President, indicated that the pricing would be equivalent to existing cable and satellite services and the deal would have to include its “whole suite of products” and not individual channels.

Earlier on Wednesday, AllThingsD reported that Google had met with the NFL to discuss broadcasting games on YouTube.
