The Week: Media news - Delay over Project Canvas

The BBC Trust has delayed its final decision on whether to approve Project Canvas, the joint venture TV catch-up service between the BBC, ITV and BT, saying that the partners have not provided enough in-depth information.

The Trust had originally intended to make its final decision on whether the joint venture could go ahead by 24 July, but has now asked the project partners to provide more extensive information on areas such as the way the BBC will work with industry bodies, control of the electronic programme guide, governance arrangements and how editorial controls will be used.
