Disney to join Yahoo TV

January 10, 2011

Walt Disney is in talks with Yahoo over making videos from its television networks available through the Internet media company’s TV software.

Disney is looking to create online channels, or widgets, for its ESPN, ABC and Disney networks that would broadcast content to Yahoo-connected TV sets. The content would be available for free.

The ability to offer some of Disney’s networked material would bring Yahoo into the battle between Apple, Google and Cisco Systems to combine Internet video and conventional television.
