Siemens denies IPTV withdrawal from China

This past week has seen a lot of coverage of a report from Shanghai Security News that Siemens already dismissed its IPTV unit in China after losing a bid to UTStarcom and ZTE for a Shanghai Telecom contract. The service launched in September. According to the report, a Shanghai Telecom engineer said: "Siemens was not selected because its system reacts slowly, and they only offer IPTV remote controls with English titles." Siemens denied the report saying: "We are quite confident in our IPTV business in China."
