BBC gets Project Canvas approval from Trust

The BBC Trust has given the broadcaster the go-ahead to continue involvement in the free-to-air internet TV initiative

The BBC's involvement in the free-to-air internet TV initiative, Project Canvas, has been given the final go-ahead by the BBC's independent regulator, the BBC Trust.

Project Canvas is a broadcast industry effort to create a platform for bringing free-to-air content to the UK's televisions through broadband-enabled set-top boxes.

Users will be able to access on-demand content directly through their television using a bespoke interface. As these boxes will be connected to the internet there is also the potential for users to access other online applications.
