According to Recode, Microsoft will now be able to share any AOL video, including original programming — like what you see on HuffPost Live — and videos it distributes for companies like ESPN.

The AOL videos will be featured on MSN.com and Windows and Windows Phone Bing apps.

Microsoft will handle ad sales for the videos, with both companies sharing the ad revenue.
