A while ago, China Broadcasting Corporation suddenly issued 5G licenses.
At that time, the entry of China Radio and Television into the 5G network sparked much discussion and speculation.
Now China Radio and Television claim to have found a new entry point for 5G applications, namely “5G NR Broadcast”.
With this technology, 5G-enabled cell phones can receive TV programs for free.
China Radio and Television has entered the 5G network and has the best frequency band resources, which makes many other operators very envious. How China Radio and Television and the three major traditional operators avoid homogeneous competition and form disparate development has become the focus of the industry. In addition to the fact that China Radio and Television and China Mobile have jointly built high-quality resources in the 700MHz gold frequency band, in the future 5G mobile phones can receive TV programs for free.
Zeng Qingjun, deputy general manager of China Radio and Television Network Co, said in his speech that China Radio and Television had found a breakthrough: 5G NR broadcasting. 5G NR broadcast does not change the existing 5G transmission layer system, it uses the existing 5G NR channel to conduct 5G networks. In the future, 5G mobile phones can receive TV programs for free without worrying about traffic and network congestion.
It is understood that 5G NR broadcasting uses a 700MHz 5G commercial base station, which can simultaneously use multiple 5G mobile phones as terminals to receive broadcast signals. Nokia Bell Shanghai successfully completed a 700MHz 5G NR broadcast demonstration in the laboratory, receiving end-to-end HD video broadcast services on multiple 700MHz 5G mobile phones, and realizing free access to mobile phones of multi-operator users.
The entire 5G NR broadcasting system can transmit multiple channels of 1080P HD video/4K ultra-high-definition video, regardless of the operator network used by the user, and truly realize a set of 700MHz 5G base station, and multiple mobile phone users can access (Free to Air) at the same time. In the broadcast signal scene, 5G mobile phones can receive TV programs for free in the future.
At the application level, Zeng Qingjun, deputy general manager of China Radio and Television, exemplified that, for example, the upcoming Winter Olympics will allow all 5G-enabled mobile phones to watch radio and television broadcasts, and not use data to receive it. Although 5G mobile phones can receive TV programs for free in the future, this method sounds good, but nowadays young people don’t watch TV. TV stations’ programs have the fragrance of iQiyi? Are there all kinds of live broadcast girls?
Of course, although the future 5G mobile phone can receive TV programs for free is a technological innovation worthy of recognition, but there is one point that China Radio and Television has to consider clearly, the key is to look at the content to attract users. Don’t end up with good 5G NR broadcasts becoming 5G NR advertisements. Nowadays, viewers will not be used to you anymore.
