Today there is a ray of hope, albeit very dim, that my wish for ESPN to provide video content to the iTunes Music Store may be realized. According to Reuters, ESPN (and ABC Sports) president George Bodenheimer said that his network is eager to become a "...sports media company." While ESPN did not confirm that they have actually held talks with Apple, Bodenheimer stated that they are willing to share video content with "...any pipe, any device." ESPN is a Disney company, which already has a deal with Apple for Lost and Desperate Housewives.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I'd love to watch Patriots highlights on my iPod.
