Project Canvas given green light by BBC Trust
The BBC Trust, the corporation's governing body, has given a provisional go-ahead for a project which could kick-start demand for internet TV.
Project Canvas is a partnership between the BBC, ITV, BT, Five, Channel 4 and TalkTalk to develop a so-called Internet Protocol Television standard.
It would see a range of set-top boxes available to access on-demand TV services such as iPlayer and ITVplayer.
Set-top boxes, expected to cost around £200, could be available next year.
The Trust reached its provisional conclusions following more than 800 written responses.
