Seesaw Internet TV
The new on demand Internet TV service Seesaw has entered the beta trial stage, aiming to be launching in March 2010 – with classic Doctor Who as one of the shows available on the platform, reports BBC News.
Based on the technology developed for the blocked BBC project Project Kangaroo, Seesaw – now owned by Arqiva who purchased the technology when the government’s Competition Commission blocked the BBC from benefitting from the platform – plans to ultimately run free and pay-per-view services.
Along with showing classic Doctor Who, Seesaw have signed a content deal with BBC Worldwide that also includes on-demand access to other shows such as Lark Rise to Candleford, and are reportedly in negotiation with Channel 4, Five and various US broadcasters fro other content.
