Internet users around the world are now able to watch live round-the-clock broadcasts of giant pandas living at a research base in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

Twenty-eight high definition video cameras have been installed at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding to record the daily activities of the more than 80 giant pandas living there. The national TV network China Central Television (CCTV) is providing the online broadcast, which started on Monday.

Visitors to the "Giant Panda Channel," or ipanda.com, can choose from six feeds, including the "Garden for Adult Pandas," "Kindergarten," "Nursery for Twins," "Mother and Child Playground," "No.1 Villa" and "Featured," according to their own preference at any time of the day.

CCTV signed an agreement with the Chengdu Research Base in April to launch the "Giant Panda Channel" and promote panda preservation.
