Big players plan “Project Canvas”


by David Allen

Broadband will be getting a Freeview service by early 2010 if the BBC, BT and ITV get their own way and are able to launch Project Canvas, which is said to be the next generation of digital TV set top boxes.

The service will be a combination of HD, Radio and TV services, available as archived programming or catch up services. It is believed that Project Canvas will be utilising the technology behind the BBC’s iPlayer.

This project is part of the plan that the BBC has just announced, where they intend to build partnerships with internet services providers, content providers and broadcasters.

This could be another way of finding a solution to the financial problems that currently exist within the public service broadcasting sector.

However, will the problems that are holding back Project Kangaroo also have an effect on the BBC Trust’s decision to allow this project to go ahead?
