UKTV, the BBC co-owned satellite and cable channel, is to open an IPTV stream through BT Vision.

BT's customers will be able to subscribe to UKTV content or access programmes on a one-off basis.

Toward the end of the year, a number of UKTV's channels - Watch, Dynamo and BBC repeat channel Gold - will themselves be streamed.

Other channels - you know, the ones that help pad out the spaces in the Freeview EPG: Dave, Really and Yesterday - and UKTV's other satellite/cable channels - Alibi, Blighty, Eden, Home and Good Food - may come to BT Vision in due course. ®
