BT Group plc (BT.L) today announces its results for the third quarter and nine months to 31 December 2009.

The BT Vision customer base grew to 451,000 at 31 December 2009 with the average number of views per month per subscriber increasing more than 40% over the same quarter last year to 37.

In December Project Canvas achieved a significant milestone with the BBC Trust giving provisional approval for BBC involvement. Project Canvas is the joint venture between BT, the UK public service broadcasters and other partners to develop and promote a new open standard for TV, combining broadcast and broadband television delivery. Project Canvas would positively transform the UK TV market and we welcome this step forward. In the next few months Ofcom is expected to finalise its statement on whether Sky will be required to sell wholesale access to premium channels such as Sky Sports and Sky Movies at regulated prices. This will be beneficial for both competition and the consumer as it will provide greater choice, cheaper prices and new innovative products.
