Bought as a way to expand further into the burgeoning streaming media market, and perhaps with own Hudl tablet in mind to have an integrated service similar to that offered by Amazon on the successful Fire tablets.
However, the acquisition has not turned out as imagined and Tesco have been shopping around looking for a buyer for its video streaming service Blinkbox. It could be that the search is nearing an end as rumour mount that UK telephony company TalkTalk emerging ahead of Vodafone to pick up the VOD site and look to add to their growing multi-play offerings.
The news of the deal is expected to be announced early in January.
