Bouncing Back From The Grave

Video technology company Arqiva has indicated that it is going to enter the VoD longform market after buying the assets of Kangaroo. The company already has relationships with most broadcasters and is potentially well placed to get a 'Kangaroo-like' service in place, albeit after the launch of Hulu in the UK.

Meanwhile, more news reaches me of Canvas, the erstwhile BBC speced ultra-secretive, 'open source' initiative; apparently it will use HTML5 and Flash Lite and will be far from the lightweight, standards based platform that it claims to be.
