In 2008H1, Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Tianjin launched digital terrestrial television; Qinhuangdao, Qingdao, Shenyang and Guangzhou will start digital terrestrial television, but terrestrial STB which faces ordinary residents has not appeared. Some brands have launched digital terrestrial television, such as TOSHIBA, which are sold in Beijing and Qingdao. Integrated machine integrates STB’s functions into television. Integrated sale will affect the sales volume of STB. As for satellite DTV, despite the successful launch of Chinasat 9 satellite on June 9, satellite’s live broadcasting policy and terrestrial carriers have not been fixed. Sales volume of satellite STB remains stagnant; in 2008H1, China Telecom pays more attention to the development of IPTV and enlarges investment in purchasing STB.
