China to Build World Largest Satellite SystemPresidents of Boeing, ALCATEL, global satellite organizations and some other world first class companies gathered in Beijing to attend the 2001 China Satellite Application Fair and all of them have brought with them various space satellite concepts for further tapping satellite broadcasting market.
Person in charge of State Administration of Radio Film and Television said that China's TV satellite live broadcast scheme has passed appraisal, and within 6 years, China will have 60 million users, and a satellite live broadcast system will be set up having the most users in the world, thus motivating a new industry to turn out an annual output value of 20 billion-yuan, and it is expected that it will benefit about 100 million people in outlaying areas. That means China will have its own satellite live broadcast system, and so far, many developed countries have established suchlike systems. However, China still adopts satellite to rebroadcast. So far, competition for occupying satellite orbits is very fierce and many countries have worked out plans to enter Chinese market as China is going to join the WTO. This has served as a impetus for China to make its own satellite TV programs.
By the end of 2005, China's analog TV will be totally replaced by digital TV, analog programs on CCTV-1 will stop broadcasting by December 31, 2005.
China is making research on new generation static orbit satellite platform with a designed lifespan of 15 years, and it will also develop new satellite especially for multimedia, broadcasting and broadband based on this platform.
