Project Kangaroo

November 2, 2008

Project Kangaroo is the working title of a video-on-demand (VoD) service to be provided by a consortium made up of ITV, Channel 4 and BBC Worldwide.

Content available will include recent and classic TV programmes and serials. There will be a catch-up TV service for recently aired programmes. Other content will be available free (paid for by advertising on the service) or pay-for.

It is expected that other broadcasters and content owners will be asked to join the service at a later date.
