BT aims for linear, OTT programming

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.
