HIT Entertainment (behind Bob, Pingu and Thomas the Tank Engine, to name but a few), Nelvana (Beyblade) and the National Geographic Channel are the latest firms to ink content deals with BT ahead of the launch of its internet TV (IPTV) service in the autumn.
BT has also reportedly signed up BBC Worldwide, Paramount and Warner Music Group in deals that will bring on demand services to customers. Apparently, there are many more deals to come.

WOW, it looks like the UK is catching up to the modern world. Those TV programs for kids, are a sure hit, and should be very profitable to broadband providers. Great job BT.

Good for anyone with kids in the UK. Hopefully they will get more stations and channels to sign on.

And parents are worried about us getting squared eyes by watching to close to the T.V. This will really tick them off though this trend is predicatable.
