MySpace, Tudou join China Central Television for Olympic streaming

Two China-based Web sites to offer streaming broadcasts of Olympic events

China Central Television (CCTV) will allow two China-based Web sites to offer streaming broadcasts of Olympic events, the companies announced Wednesday.

Joining CCTV, the Beijing Olympics' official Internet and mobile phone broadcaster, are popular online video site Tudou.com and MySpace China. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

CCTV.com holds the online broadcast rights to the Olympics, with Sohu.com operating the official Web site for the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games (BOCOG).

Shanghai-based Tudou is China's most popular online video site. In July 2007, Nielsen Netratings reported that Tudou was one of the Web's fastest-growing sites, with over 6 million unique users per week and almost half a billion Web pages per week.

The deal is a particularly big win for MySpace China, based in Beijing, which has been operating here for less than a year, and has not yet established itself as the powerhouse in China that its social-networking site is elsewhere in the world.

The streaming broadcasts will only be accessible in China, the companies said, as CCTV's rights only cover China. It has not yet been decided if programming will be available only in Chinese or if other languages would be included.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
