China's CCTV begins OTA HDTV broadcasts tomorrow
China promised OTA HDTV in 2008, and they're not waiting to deliver it. Starting January 1, China's Central Television HD station moves from digital cable-only to the airwaves in Beijing, and progressing to the rest of the country over the next few years. Viewers may need a new set-top box to receive CCTV's DMB-T signals, and it will be broadcast on all public antennas and cable systems. Between the Olympics, CH-DVD, and cheap HDM players 2008 will be a year of many interesting developments for high definition in China.
