Oh, Kangaroo, will you ever see the light of day? Or will you be permanently vaporware?
Kangaroo has come up against another set of problems. The joint venture between BBC ITV and Channel 4 has been referred to the Competition Commission by the Office of Fair Trading. And this is before it has even been seen on a computer screen anywhere.
In a statement, the OFT said ...
"In reaching its decision, the OFT carefully considered all evidence as to whether the joint venture would face enough competition from other sources."
"While it is easy to speculate about what different UK viewers might do if the joint venture charged a higher price, there was a lack of good evidence available on these issues."
If this is the sort of problems kangaroo faces before it is available, I dread to think what will happen when or if it ever launches.
