PLAINVIEW, New York, September 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- China International Television Corporation (CITVC) and KyLinTV jointly announced an agreement today whereby the entire range of channels offered by Great Wall TV will be included in KyLinTV's European Great Wall TV package. The move will further strengthen CITVC's partnership with KyLinTV following on the roll-out of Great Wall TV on KyLinTV's North American service in 2008.
According to the agreement, the Great Wall TV package that KyLinTV will offer in Europe includes 27 TV channels: CCTV-4, CCTV-News, CCTV-Opera, CCTV-Entertainment, CCTV-E , CCTV-F, CCTV-Arabic, CCTV-Russian, China Movie Channel, Hunan TV, Beijing TV, Dragon TV, TVS, Phoenix InfoNews, Phoenix Europe, Jiangsu Int'l, Fujian Straits TV, ZTV Int'l, Xiamen Star TV, CYR TV, CQ Int'l, SZTV, Tianjin TV Int'l, AHTV Int'l, Taishan TV, Sichuan TV Int'l and GXTV Int'l.
The addition of Great Wall TV to KyLinTV Europe's lineup will vastly enrich the options for KyLinTV's European subscribers, allowing them to access more Chinese TV channels covering a wider variety of programming and genres. The Great Wall TV package for Europe brings several immensely popular Chinese TV channels into the homes of KyLinTV's European subscribers - among the more popular:
- CCTV-4, a news channel featuring up-to-minute news and current affairs programs from China and around the world; - Chinese Movie Channel, a 24/7 movie channel offering the best selection of films from China's prolific movie industry, ranging from the elegant classics to the most avant-garde entries of the new generation; - CCTV-Opera, with a non-stop panoply of Beijing and other first class operas to satisfy the tastes of Chinese opera buffs; and - CCTV-Entertainment, a variety channel allowing European subscribers to keep up with the latest developments in Chinese culture with its wide lineup of superb variety shows;
Plus a legion of provincial TV channels to keep subscribers updated on what's going on in their hometown.
CITVC president Li Jian spoke highly of the cooperation, saying, As the most important Chinese TV channel platform outside of China, the Great Wall TV package is a window connecting the latest members of the Chinese diaspora with their home countries. The latest partnership between CITVC and KyLinTV will provide them access to the best in Chinese television programming, enabling viewers to keep a close eye on what is going on in their hometown, meanwhile, the release of Great Wall TV on KyLinTV Europe will provide Europeans who are interested in China with a better way to study the Chinese language and discover Chinese culture.
KyLinTV president Duan Jianbing said, Utilizing cutting-edge technology, KyLinTV's Chinese IPTV platform with its vast amount of Chinese-language television programming has proven itself immensely popular with all members of the overseas Chinese community. Its updated features allow subscribers throughout North America access to broadband to watch programs at the same time that they are aired in China. This and many other features attest to the wide popularity of Great Wall TV in North America. I believe KyLinTV's many advantages, including its advanced technology, the professional team, the excellent customer service and mature marketing strategy, all combine to ensure that this same high quality of service will be delivered to its new European subscribers, while providing a bridge linking the members of the Chinese diaspora to their hometowns.
