The technology developed for the now-defunct online TV project Kangaroo has finally seen the light of day, following the public beta launch of Arqiva's SeeSaw service.
Kangaroo, a joint venture between BBC Worldwide, Channel 4 and ITV, was blocked by the Competition Commission in February 2009 over concerns it would place too much control of content and distribution in the hands of the broadcasters.
The online on-demand TV service, acquired by communications infrastructure and media services company Arqiva in August 2009, now features catch-up and archive content from BBC Worldwide, Channel 4 and Five. However, there's no content from ITV, one of the Kangaroo partners.
