China's iPad users get free TV broadcast

Beijing: China’s state-owned television network China Xinhua News Network Corporation (CNC) will provide a 24-hour free broadcast to iPad users in the country.

Users of Apple Inc’s wireless tablet computer would be able to watch programmes of CNC’s Chinese and world channels by downloading and installing the software from Apple stores free of charge, Xinhua reported.

The network’s channels were earlier connected to iPhone users a month ago.

Wu Jincai, CNC president and deputy editor-in-chief of Xinhua news agency, said the broadcast through iPad will provide a new medium to audiences around the world to acquire Xinhua news.

The CNC started broadcasting Chinese programmes Jan 1 this year and officially launched its English language service called CNC World July 1.
