U.K. telco giant BT has not necessarily been among the leaders in the worldwide IPTV arena, but the company is set to embrace both linear programming and over-the-top video distribution as part of its BT Vision service, according to a post at IPTV News which attributes the source as Informa Telecoms & Media.
BT Vision currently has 340,000 subscribers for video-on-demand services. Earlier this month, the telco signed an on-demand content deal with Twentieth Century Fox.
