Apple, Disney expand iTunes video

Aficionados of Apple Computer Inc.'s iTunes Music Store are in for a treat – they will soon have even more video content to choose from. That’s thanks to a new television show partnership with The Walt Disney Co. Disney has said that it will provide new programs from ESPN, ABC Sports, ABC News and other channels. The new content will be available on the iTunes store as from Tuesday. All new shows will cost $1.99 per episode to download.

ESPN will begin making content such as interviews from its ESPN Classic "SportsCentury" series, and "Knight School," an upcoming reality show about Texas Tech basketball coach Bobby Knight, available later this month.

Additionally, by the end of January, Apple will begin offering ABC content such as the 1970s "School House Rock" cartoons, segments from "Good Morning America," "World News Tonight," and "America's Funniest Home Videos."
