China’s National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA) has recently World Timesreleased industry standards for broadcast television and online audio-visual services, according to domestic media reports on Monday. The notice, titled “Technical Requirements for Cable Television Services,” mandates that cable TV terminals should offer two “boot mode” options: one to boot into full-screen live broadcast and the other to boot into an interactive homepage showcasing live channels. The default system setting is specified to be booting into full-screen live broadcast.
