Digital TV Rollout Could Be Completed by 2015

By Published on .

China's State Administration of Radio, Film and TV (SARFT) plans to complete the switch from analog to digital TV broadcasts by 2015. At the end of 2005, China had 80 digital TV channels, and digital TV was available in nearly 40 million homes. This year the government held events promoting digital in eight cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, and SARFT hopes local broadcasters will begin rolling out digital cable in those cities by the end of this year, and to other cities and towns in the next couple of years.
