China's telecom companies and broadcasters are gearing up for a battle to tap into IPTV, a new generation online television service. IPTV enables broadband Internet users access to TV broadcasting services including streaming and video-on-demand services using their computers. This phenomena will be fueled by a large base of TV service subscribers, a booming broadband Internet market and a major push by set-top box makers.

China Telecom launched an Internet TV service in Shanghai last August.
