People in Beijing will be able to watch the 2008 Olympic games on their mobile phones, digital cameras, personal digital assistants and MP4 players.
Beijing Radio has announced that it will officially launch digital multi-media broadcasting service on September 6, which will broadcast high-definition digital audio and video programmes to mobile equipment.
The station has already been offering a digital audio broadcasting service since April on a trial basis.
"From the beginning of 2007, the station will also begin to transmit information about government affairs, daily life, the city and real-time traffic and weather conditions," head of the station Wang Liang said.
The receiving terminals must be equipped with digital video broadcasting chips to gain access to digital multi-media broadcasting service.
