“More coverage is the key issue because we are offering more channels than normal TV,” Cheng Ching-ming, director of interactive multimedia at Chunghwa told Bloomberg. The company, which began offering the service in March 2004, estimates the number of users of the service will climb to 600,000 by August 30, from about 500,000 at the end of last month..
