Intel targets Shanghai’s IPTV services
Intel plans to team up with the Shanghai Media Group to run mobile TV and IPTV (Internet Portal TV) businesses in Shanghai, the Shanghai-based Liberation Daily reported. A R&D center for wireless and broadband Internet applications and high-resolution TV programs will be set up in the northeastern Yangpu district, where many of Shanghai’s prestigious universities are based. Intel said the spotlight of the cooperation will be IPTV, which offers interactive TV programs on demand. The charges for local subscribers range from RMB400 to RMB700 per year depending on packages. The other two main features of IPTV are interactive games and the ability to upload and share personal video clips with other subscribers.
