08-24-2010 09:40 BJT

The 19th International Broadcasting Radio, TV and Film Equipment Exhibition opened today. The integration of telecom, radio, TV and Internet networks is the focus of the event.

The integration of telecom, radio, TV and Internet networks has attracted a lot of attention since the idea was first proposed.

In this exhibition, there's a special hall to showcase the latest results of the integration of various media and communication networks.

Xiamen is one of the first pilot cities for the integration of triple networks. Residents in the city are experiencing a new kind of service, which allows them to do online banking, pay bills and go shopping, using a TV and a remote control.

Citizens also have access to a wealth of information at their fingertips, from comparing airfares to looking for jobs. The information is constantly updated.

Industry insiders say more and more cities will enjoy integrated network services in the next few years. But what about the cost of the new technology?

Che Ke, Vice Manager of Haerbin Cable TV Network Co. Ltd. said "There are many services offered through TV. They are quite convenient. We are basically servicing the public for free. The TV is also a terminal itself. It can enable the public to enjoy more convenient and personalized services, with cheaper charge."

Relevant government departments are still discussing the fee framework for different services. Currently, the users are provided with set-top boxes and new TV services for free.
