Forget Apple TV, Google TV and YouView. Games consoles are going to be
the main way that people view online video on their TV sets in the

Lovefilm, which both posts DVDs and streams films over the internet to
subscribers.

YouView is finally open. The BBC-led internet-TV consortium, formerly known as Project Canvas, is open for business, open to all comers, and open-ended in its ambition.

That’s not a quote from Richard Halton, appointed chief executive of the joint venture on Thursday. It is the message that its new logo – as Project Canvas rebrands as YouView – is designed to send to viewers, content owners and developers.
