Less than an hour ago, it was announced that Disney-owned ABC has entered into a deal with Hulu to provide programming content. However, Eye on Sports Media has confirmed with an ESPN spokesperson that this deal does not include any ESPN owned and generated content.

What does this mean for sports fans? The immediate thing that comes to mind is that unlike Fox Sports, which has made the BCS Bowl games available on Hulu after the games are over, ESPN will not be doing this.

So strike another blow against the average sports fan as ESPN gobbles up properties in the continued "cablization of television sports properties"
