Rumor: State Council Approves Convergence Trial Draft Plans

Beijing Morning Post, 5/26/11

China's State Council's network convergence leading group has approved draft plans for convergence trials in 12 cities, according to an industry source, although further changes will be made before the plans are publicly announced. The plans still have yet to resolve several problems, including the most fundamental issue of balancing the interests of both telecom and cable TV operators. The source said that Beijing could launch IPTV services as early as October 2011.
