Waiting for the Asian Pay-TV Panel

The statistic of the week came out of my panel this morning at CASBAA. According to Li Danyang, senior Vice President of Beijing Gehua Cultural Development Group, China’s Internet has now surpassed 280 million users.

The country loves numbers, so I’m betting that the CNNIC January report puts us right around 300 million users.

So update your fact sheets, and prepare to update them again in two months.

By the way, If I hear the word “monetize” one more time, I am going to have a myocardial infarction.
