Live telecast offered for tomb sweeping

As Tomb Sweeping Day approaches, many Chinese are providing tomb-sweeping services for those too busy or far away to sweep their ancestors' tombs themselves. A man surnamed Shao in Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan province, is one of them, but what makes his service unique is that he also offers a live telecast of the tomb-sweeping to his customers. He will offer incense sticks, bow and chant eulogies to the deceased, with prices starting at 999 yuan ($163).

If the customer wants to witness the services online, a live telecast is available through instant messaging software QQ at the cost of 150 yuan per minute.
