Earlier this year we heard Tencent was in talks with New Oriental Education & Technology to introduce the latter’s educational content onto the former’s newly launched online education platform. We don’t know whether that will happen later, but today the pioneer in Chinese private education sector announced to team up with BesTV, a digital content and solution provider, to offer digital educational content through the latter’s various channels.

A program named “New Oriental TV School” will be available in more than 20 provinces in China through BesTV’s IPTV content platform. Students will be able to watch video courses on demand by New Oriental teachers who mostly give lectures at physical classes. And those classes charge pretty high prices. Apparently the content on BesTV’s platform is for free.

A kid-oriented educational program will be pre-loaded in the set-top boxes by BesTV. It is reported that the two companies will cooperate on digital education programs for Chinese schools later.
