iPod with streaming video?

The next generation of iPod -- anticipated at this January's Macworld conference -- could well have some form of streaming video support, T3 reports. A Disney filing at the US Patent Office suggests that the company would like to stream video from ESPN direct to wireless devices, among them the iPod, which is listed as a potential target. Select ESPN shows are already on sale at the iTunes Music Store, but the patent refers to game results and other real-time content. Disney owns ESPN and has formed strong ties with Apple, as Disney movies have recently premiered on iTunes, and Apple CEO Steve Jobs sits on Disney's board of directors.
