Project Kangaroo was looking like road kill for a while, but apparently Orange has stepped up and is considering purchasing the technology behind the service. Kangaroo was built as a joint venture between BBC, Channel Four, and ITV.
Development costs between the four channels that participated are thought to be in the realm of £20 million, but Orange would likely only need to pony up a small fraction of that amount if it buys.
The service has about a million subscribers at this point so it could prove to be a good investment. Whether or not the deal will be completed remains to be seen, Orange has made no announcements. Techwatch reports that ITV is in talks to get Hulu to bring Kangaroo back.

Kendall Jenner leads a Complicated Life
Kendall Jenner, and the complicated life she leads with friends, fans and family, prove one thing. And that is that she knows how to hang in there amidst the media hype and mass publicity.
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.
