Analyst: Paul Budde


China’s first IPTV services were launched by Shanghai Telecom in 2005. Some of you might recall that BuddeComm reported on this subject during the visit to China around that time by Paul Budde. Shanghai’s IPTV system now has around 150,000 users. However, the platform used here is a standalone IPTV service, concentrating on TV services. The licence-holder for this IPTV service is the Shanghai Broadcasting Corporation (SBC), which also operates nine other IPTV systems. The media company has 300,000 IPTV users. Paul Budde also visited the company’s impressive control centre from which all ten systems are operated.
