The HD service, the first of its kind in China, features movies, TV series, documentaries and 3-dimensional animated pictures.

Additionally, the Chinese government has set a deadline of 2015 for the culmination of the country"s mass migration to digital TV and the nationwide switch-off of analog broadcasting.
