BBC Canvas – IPTV Consultation

The BBC’s IPTV project – Canvas – is now the subject of a BBC Trust consultation:

The BBC Executive has asked the BBC Trust for permission to develop a joint venture to promote a standards based open environment for internet connected television devices, otherwise known as ‘Project Canvas’. For consumers this would enable subscription-free access to on-demand television services and other internet-based content, through a broadband connected digital device.

There are lots of short hand ways of describing Canvas, but most are misleading. Best to take a look at what is proposed and respond. I will.
