China's Xinhua launches global English TV channel


news.bbc.co.uk

China's state news agency Xinhua has launched a 24-hour global news channel in English.

Officials said CNC World would present "an international vision with a China perspective".

The launch is being seen as an attempt by China to develop its influence abroad and counter foreign media views.

I am looking forward to watching this. China adds to an already strong list of global English channels - Press TV, Al Jazeera, RT etc. and opportunity to gain more insight into this intriguing country has gotta be good.

For a country that has more internet users than America has people, we know so little about China.

I doubt we have any reason to fear a Chinese invasion.

Otherwise, pretty cool news!

I surely hope they do like Russia Today does
and put those videos on the internet. I think it
is kewl. Good luck to the station. I welcome
their perspective and thanks to them for putting
it in english

I can't imagine it being any worse than any of the main US news stations: CNN, Fox or MSNBC.

We really need more of these. India, Japan, and Brazil need to start their own too.

That just reads to me as another propaganda channel and nothing more.

Could be, but I guess we'll have to watch and see.

Haven't actually been able to watch any broadcasts yet, the video on the site seems to be broken.

CCTV have been putting many shows and clips on the web for years - I watch CCTV news sometimes, and suprisingly it is not bad. Less sensationalism, mostly impartial, and sometimes more info on what you would get from other countries.

Either way, it is good to have broader views, from different countries, in order to build a more complete picture.

Everyone in China has access to BBC, CNBC, Fox, CNN, ABC (Australia) news broadcasts etc etc...so it would seem fair for this to be reciprocated on a broader scale.


You can check out some clips here: english.cntv.cn...
