Haven't they heard of satellite and cable? It just seems odd investing that kind of money in an antenna in 2007.

umm... When you watching CNN from your cable, do you think it is all the way cabling from NYC to your cable station, all via pricy $$ satelite or using TV tower across the US, allso it is very hard to make satelite service work without dish at the TV tower sending sending image to teh satelite. Just for the footnote we are the one need more TV towers to handle all the new TV and HD radio stations, also for cell phone, weather, and goverment comm.....etc. etc.

Not just simple. I have the cinema, hotel and shops inside. In addition, it will mix with Guangzhou Twins Tower, CITIC plaza to create the Skyline of the CITY.

Most of people does not know that Guangzhou is the richest city in china in term of GDP per CAPITA (Shainghai is 2000 USD away (8000 to 10000USD), sup??? the total is 83 (GZ) to 130 Billion (Shanghai)). I think Shanghai is more famous because the skyline take some impacts.

In conclusion, GZ should build that tall building!

I fully realize what TV towers are for. My point is more about why one on this scale is necessary. Antennas like the ones on top of the Sears Tower or the former WTC in New York work perfectly well at a tiny fraction of the cost. Don't get me wrong, I love this project and think it's beautiful.

And Mr. Alloy - Sure I could have a different avatar, but I think this one is funny. I'll change it when I get tired of it.

Not really a fraction of a cost when you consider that those buildings were expensive to build. If you don't just have a Sears Tower sitting around in your neighborhood, it kind of limits your options. The antenna operators pay a fair amount of money for roof privileges to put their antennas on the skyscrapers. And even in Chicago, where, cable and satellite are about as ubiquitously available as anywhere in the world, there is debate as to whether the Sears Tower and JHC will be enough to handle the demand for HD terrestrial broadcast signals.

I think Shanghai is more involved with the banking and tech industries. Much of Guangdong region's development spills over from HK and Macau, which may be one of the causes of its high GDP.

Yeap! i think hongkong play very big role along with cantonese overseas (GZ is the capital of Cantonese). Macau is so small, therefore, it is not really help!
