BT in Talks with the BBC and TalkTalk to Buy YouView (IPTV Platform)

Quote
BT are rumoured to be mooting the acquisition of broadband based Video-on-Demand and Catch-Up TV (IPTV) platform, YouView, which underpins both their Pay TV service and that of several other ISPs (TalkTalk, JT etc.). A figure of around 60m is currently being mooted (up from a starting offer of 20m).

YouView originally started life as a Joint Venture project between the BBC, ITV, BT, Channel 4, TalkTalk, Arqiva and Channel 5 (Five). The platform was designed to be the next step beyond Freeview (the Free-to-air digital terrestrial television service), although in the end the only real takers for it were Pay TV customers from BT and TalkTalk.
