ABC News will provide Insight Communications Co. Inc. with 20 hours of programming on a subscription-video-on-demand basis, Reuters reported.

Insight will offer the ABC News content as part of a $4.99-per-month sports and news service featuring content from about seven sources, the MSO said.

One-half of the ABC News content will be updated on a monthly basis, Reuters reported.

ABC News sister network ESPN is also in negotiations to join the package, ESPN and Insight executives told Reuters.

The ABC News content will not include daily news, but will be made up of special reports and excerpts from Nightline, among other sources.
