Sohu staff recently leaked a new spin-off plan for its video site SohuTV with an imminent IPO plan.

China’s video market showed some good signs recently. According to a new report by iResearch, the Chinnese Internet thinktank, in terms of monthly page views Youku(4.846b), Tudou(2.674b) and SohuTV(3.131b) won the first three places. The former two have been moving at a steady pace together, while other players are focusing on different directions. It looks like this market’s business model (ad-supported plus subscription fee) and ecosystem are gradually mature and being accepted.
