ABC content headed to Hulu? According to a few "insider sources," Disney is currently in serious negotiations with Hulu for a deal that would bring Disney and ABC content to the popular online video site.
Although it is not entirely clear what programming would be brought over, ABC TV content such as the blockbuster show Lost is a definite while many believe that Disney Channel programming such as Hannah Montana will make the crossover as well.

In exchange, Disney would be given an equity stake in the site.

Hulu recently became the number four video site in the US with 332.5 million video streams viewed for the month of February alone. Disney was far down the list in 9th, with 112 million streams viewed for the month.

If the deal were to be completed, Hulu would have 3 of the largest broadcast TV networks, with the notable exception of CBS which runs rival site TV.com.
