BBC Project Canvas set top box gets OFT go ahead

20May10
The Office of Fair Trading has decided not to prevent the BBC’s project Canvas after all.
Canvas  itself sounded pretty exciting, essentially a hardware set top box for iPlayer and all the other terrestrial networks’ On Demand services (excluding Five if I remember correctly.  But who watches Five?)
Having used Virgin Cable TV for about 3 months, I can say the On Demand integration for iPlayer, ITV and Channel 4 players is excellent.  Canvas could be a real opportunity to shake up the way everyone watches TV in the UK.
