Building China IPTV platform going “smoothly”
February 28, 2011
The project to create a national IPTV platform in China is going “smoothly,” according to Zhang Haitao, deputy chief of the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT), at a press conference held in Beijing.
All 12 pilot cities, chosen by the SARFT to build local IPTV platforms, had finished the construction and linked their platforms to the central-level platform late last year, Zhang said.
About 50 million households in China have access to the interactive digital cable TV services and people in 308 cities have access to digital TV programmes, he added.
