Shanghai leads China IPTV uptake
March 28, 2008
Initial statistics for 2007 on the number of Chinese IPTV subscribers shows that by the end of 2007, Shanghai had 240,000 IPTV subscribers and that after large-scale promotion in January, this figure is now at 300,000 â€“ the highest in the country. As a whole the country now has 1.2 million IPTV subscribers.
Currently, over 90 per cent of provinces in mainland China have IPTV systems. However, coverage is not as complete in some provinces as in others, and some provinces are still undergoing trials before commercialising the service.
