Virgin Media wants to work with Project Canvas

June 15, 2010

A while ago, it seemed that Virgin Media was against the development of the multi-channel online TV service Project Canvas, but now it would seem that the cable TV provider is supporting the scheme.

According to the CEO of Virgin Media, Neil Berkett, Virgin Media is standing behind Project Canvas and in fact, following its deal with TiVo, the firm would like to open up these new set top boxes to the BBC led project.

However, as with many things in this business, all would not seem to be as it appears.

While Virgin Media is willing to offer Project Canvas via the TiVo set top box, the broadcasters behind the project are not likely to allow it, as they wish to keep control of the interface.
