14/3/13 Such a pity that the The BBC has today launched a new campaign celebrating over 90 years of innovation, telling the story of broadcasting, engineering and technological progress since 1922.
But has missed out on the timeline 2000-2006 KITV interactive IPTV on ADSL including the red button and the birthplace of the iPlayer.
as Greg Dyke said back then " Launching the service in Hull today, BBC Director General Greg Dyke said: .Hull will be seeing the future of broadcasting before the rest of the country. We are opening the door to a new era.
New interactive technologies provide the BBC, as a public service broadcaster, with a unique opportunity to get closer to our audience - and for them to get more back from the BBC. .My ambition is to harness all of the benefits that
digital technology provides and extend the BBC.s local and learning role still further - to place the BBC right at the heart of British community life in the twenty-first century"

Wikipedia IPTV
Kingston Communications, a regional telecommunications operator in the UK, launched KIT (Kingston Interactive Television), an IPTV over digital subscriber line (DSL) broadband interactive TV service in September 1999
after conducting various TV and video on demand (VoD) trials. The operator added additional VoD service in October 2001 with Yes TV, a VoD content provider. Kingston was one of the first companies in the world
to introduce IPTV and IP VoD over ADSL. In 2006, the KIT service was discontinued, subscribers having declined from a peak of 10,000 to 4,000. [6]
