This is the government’s latest move to push the integration of the Internet, broadcasting and telecom munications networks. The new company will play a leading role in the broadcasting network integration.
The major task for the new company will be to set up and operate “a highly integrated” broadcasting network, said Wang Xiaojie, head of the technology department at the State Administration of Radio and Television.
The industry watchdog didn’t disclose when the company will start operations.
