Competition Commission Blocks Joint TV Venture

The Competition Commission has moved to block a joint online TV venture between BBC, ITV, and Channel 4. The project was known as the Kangaroo Project.

According to the Competition Commission, the project would have had a detrimental impact on competition in the VOD market. The commission says that evidence it collected shows that viewers value UK made content above all other types of content.

ITV's Chief said he was surprised at the decision. The Commission says that none of the remedies proposed to keep the project alive went far enough to maintain competition in the marketplace.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
