BT Moves on Video, Italy

U.K. incumbent operator BT Group plc (NYSE: BTmessage board;
London: BTA) has taken its latest step toward triple play, announcing a
new business unit devoted to entertainment services (see BT Creates Entertainment Division
).

The new unit will be part of BT
Retail, the division that provides residential and business services in
the U.K., and which is currently looking for a new CEO (see BT’s Danon Quits for Capgemini
). BT has appointed its head of value-added services, Andrew Burke, to
run the unit, and it has poached the head of the U.K. division of Universal Studios Networks, Dan Marks, to develop its video-over-broadband services and relationships with major content partners.
