PRC's Second IPTV License

On April 28, China Central Television (CCTV) said it has received licenses to develop IPTV, mobile TV and Internet TV services from State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television (SARFT).

Previously, Shanghai Media Group was the only business in China allowed to conduct IPTV.

Recently, there were rumors that SARFT contacted China Telecom and China Netcom asking them not to give network support to Shanda's IPTV EZ platform (Nasdaq: SNDA) because Shanda does not have a license to broadcast using that technology.
