SUNNYVALE, Calif. (AP) _ ABC News and CNN.com plan to start providing video news feeds to Yahoo Inc.'s news site, the companies have announced.

CNN.com will offer daily video clips and ABC will offer on-demand video content, Yahoo officials said in a statement late Sunday.

Video will be available for free to Yahoo users and supported by advertising.

``The addition of CNN.com and ABC News video to Yahoo! brings two of the world's most respected and valuable news providers to the Internet's largest audience,'' Scott Moore, vice president of content operations for Yahoo, said in a statement.

Yahoo intends to integrate video from both ABC News and CNN.com throughout its new site, both on the front page and within story pages.
