Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. China has the largest cable TV network in the world. Despite government restrictions on receiving and sending a full range of programs, Chinese cable television operators counted around 100 million subscribers entering 2005. Industry restructuring has seen the Ministry of Information Industry (MII) take over regulatory and management responsibility for cable TV (CATV). Digital cable TV has been languishing in China, but an initiative to provide free digital cable TV decoders may prove to rapidly increase subscriber numbers. This report offers a view into the expanding cable TV market in China, including the CCN joint venture in 2005, as well as the pay and interactive TV markets.
