Digital TV Broadcaster, the Shanghai Media Group (SMG) in September, will roll out its Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) service in the city next month according to the Oriental Morning Post in the city.
This follows the six months of limited service with 10,000 users signed up.
Li Feng, the marketing director of BesTV, which is affiliated to SMG said that Harbin where a similar roll out is taking place had 60,000 customers at the end of June. But he hope to have 50,000 by this year for BesTV as the network covers more municipalities in Shanghai but yet to reach Pudong.
The service will charge at least 60 yuan per month for each user for a choice of 58 channels.
