HÀ NỘI — The Saigon Cable Television (SCTV) said it would broadcast television programmes using the 4K standard in Việt Nam this September, the first of its kind in the country.

SCTV will initially apply the 4K standard on one channel and then on others, and on content produced by both Vietnamese and foreign channels.

The test will commence in September and the audience will enjoy the new standard next year. This plan will make Việt Nam one of the first countries in Southeast Asia to introduce 4K-standard television programmes.

During the trial period, SCTV will provide free 4K services.

However, to benefit from the new technology, the viewer must use SCTV television services, have a 4K TV set and a new digital set-top.

In the future, 4K standard will be not only be provided on cable TV channels, but also via satellite television or on the Internet in the form of on-demand content. — VNS
