Canvas answers Sky’s concerns


by David Allen

The Canvas project, being developed by the BBC, BT and ITV, has answered the satellite broadcaster BSkyB’s criticism of the project.

The idea behind Canvas is to create a standard IPTV platform from which all others can grow.

However, BSkyB has been highlighting the project’s problems and potential security issues.

In response, Canvas said that the project has the potential to offer content from a wide range of providers for a one off fee, and that it would be open to all third-parties, including Sky.

The idea is that IPTV should not be restricted to paying customers, and that Canvas will offer a subscription-free alternative.
