BT has formally announced it will be launching its long delayed IPTV service on Monday 4 December.
A BT spokesman told Reuters that the BT Vision launch would be a measured roll-out and momentum would pick up in the spring.
The service will combine a Freeview receiver with on-demand content delivered over a broadband connection and catch-up viewing of previously aired programmes.
The service is similar to the London-only Homechoice service and places BT in competition with Sky and NTL.
BT has secured around 20 content deals, the spokeman told the news service, but he declined to comment on how much it would cost.
