China Network Television (CNTV), owned by China Central Television (CCTV), and Radio and Television Shanghai signed an agreement on Feb. 1 to integrate their IPTV broadcasting control platforms.

Radio and Television Shanghai's IPTV platform will be integrated into the Central IPTV Broadcasting Control Platform, which was built and operated by CNTV, as a backup platform.

The two sides seek to build China's only IPTV broadcasting control platform by integrating their IPTV channels and programs.

The integrated IPTV broadcasting control platform will be operated by a joint venture between the two sides, which will conduct close cooperation with CNTV and BesTV IPTV Technology Company in related areas.

The integration will greatly enrich the content of China's IPTV platform, make unified management of IPTV users, accelerate the country's tri-network integration, and help the country build the world’s largest IPTV platform.
