China's 1st IPTV License Open for Broadcasters, Telecom Operators

Since the Shanghai Media Group (SMG) got China's first license of Internet Protocol (IP) TV service this month, major broadcasters and telecom operators have been agitated by the breakthrough in this potentially lucrative field.

Unlike traditional cable or wireless TV, IPTV enables broadband Internet users to access TV broadcasting services on their computers or TV sets with a set-top box. Some advanced mobile phone users can also be IPTV users with the technological progress.

The North Carolina cook's program - self-described as an "all-day, whole hog class edited down to 45 minutes on how to find, select, prepare and serve whole hog from the man who cooks several hundred per year" - will be available for a $1.99 download as early as next month on something called DaveTV
