Why would you want small amounts of rubbish rather than one big thing that works ?

The decision to block ITV, Channel 4 and the BBC from working together on their project Kangaroo video and TV download system absolutely beggars belief in this era of global internet competition.

Together "Kangaroo" could have become a major player not just in the UK, but across the world, with consumers needing just one system in order to provide content from a range of providers. However, the small minded idiots who have to make judgements on such systems decided that duplication of systems with ITV, Channel 4 and the BBC each providing their own systems was the way forward.

Presumably these same idiots will also be buying a separate TV in their homes for each channel so as to avoid using using one TV for more than one channel.

"global internet competition".

Isn't this about maintaining competition rarther than allowing the big three players - including two publically funded, so with a big advantage - to come together.
