HC Deb 04 November 2002 vol 392 c19W
Mr. Tynan

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office for what reason UK online interactive is(a) being solely provided on British Sky Broadcasting digital television and (b) not being provided on BBC digital television. [77884]

Mr. Alexander

It is our continued intention to make UK online interactive available on all available digital television platforms where technically possible. We are working to do this.

The BBC operates two of the six UK digital television multiplexes but were unable to make these available to UK online interactive due to the lack of capacity. We are actively exploring the opportunity to use one of the remaining multiplexes not controlled by the BBC.
