On 4 June, BBC Trust provided its conclusion [link broken, 2016-03-10] following the first phase of consultation on Project Canvas, BBC’s joint venture with ITV and BT. Trust issued a statement that the decision on the future Project Canvas will be delayed. Hence, one issue objected by several stakeholders has been adjusted. According to the tight time schedule, the final decision was to be published on 24 July.
Due to many stakeholders addressing missing information on the concept of Project Canvas, the BBC Executive has been approached by the Trust to provide more details. Additional information resulting from this inquiry as well as a revised time schedule will be published before commencing with the second consultation phase.
During the first consultation, the Trust received more than 800 submissions by stakeholders and license fee payers that in most part were in support of the project.
I’m looking forward getting to know more about the concept.
