Project Kangaroo - the TV venture set up to supply BBC, ITV and Channel 4 content online - won't be available until summer 2009, it has been revealed.
The broadcasters originally hoped to launch Project Kangaroo this autumn, but its availability is being delayed while the Competition Commission completes an investigation into the "competitive effects" of the service.
The Competition Commission said it was "extending the timetable for the inquiry whilst it awaits important information on details of the joint venture, which is still being negotiated by the parties".
When it does launch, Project Kangaroo will provide users with thousands of hours of current and older content. It's expected to be made available initially as a 'soft' beta launch, with the official roll-out following one month later.
