January 12, 2012

Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox Kinect has signed on as the marquee sponsor of Sunday’s Baltimore Ravens’ divisional home playoff game against Houston Texans, here in a deal estimated at more than $250,000.

As the “official gameday sponsor” of the team’s matchup with the Houston Texans, Xbox Kinect has been running 10-second promotions throughout the week on WBAL-TV 11 and WBAL Plus.

The product is also the title sponsor of WBAL-TV’s hour-long “Ravens Road to Indianapolis” program airing Saturday at 7 p.m.

Additionally, Xbox Kinect advertisements will run on pre and post-game programs on WBAL 1090-AM and 98 Rock, both official Ravens’ broadcast partners.

Xbox 360 is already a partner of the NFL.
