Project Canvas, the UK-based free-to-air digital set-top-box project backed by the BBC and other broadcasters, was formally launched today as YouView.

In 2011, the company plans to deliver set-top boxes that will combine digital broadcasting with catch-up TV in the manner of the BBC’s popular iPlayer. The company, backed by the BBC, ITV, BT, Channel 4, TalkTalk, Arqiva and Five, announced a chief executive Richard Halton, and set out its plans under its new YouView identity."
