PLAINVIEW, N.Y., Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — The world-leading Chinese IPTV provider KyLinTV announced today the official launch of Guangxi TV International as part of its expanded Great Wall package in North America.
Launched in January, 2010, Guangxi TV International, the leading television network in southern China’s Guangxi province, provides informational services related to economic and trade exchanges between countries within the recently formed China-ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Free Trade Area. With the brand positioned around the beautiful landscapes and the multicultural diversity while, at the same time, emphasizing the emerging trends in the region, Guangxi TV International introduces China and more specifically, Guangxi, the province best positioned to become the hub of the newly developing cross-border activity, to viewers in ASEAN countries and around the world. The programming lineup highlights the latest achievements as a result of the win-win cooperation between China and the various ASEAN member countries while displaying the colorful local and ethnic customs and culture of Guangxi and keeping up with the latest fashions in China.
With the addition of Guangxi TV International to the China Great Wall platform and its debut in KyLinTV North America, the expanded “Great Wall package” on KyLinTV has now increased to 25 channels, by far the most comprehensive and best-value Chinese-language TV channel package in North America, while, at the same time, being also the most representative of what Chinese audiences in North America and worldwide expect and demand.
China International TV Corporation (CITVC) vice president Wei Ping said: “As the most important Chinese TV channel platform outside China, the Great Wall TV package is a window connecting overseas viewers to China. The latest partnership between CITVC and KyLinTV will provide Guangxi TV International to audiences across North America, further enriching their TV entertainment experience.”
Peng Gang, Bureau Chief of Guangxi Radio, Film and Television and President of Guangxi TV, said: “As a new member of the Great Wall TV platform, we are pleased to see Guangxi TV landing in North America and being deployed on KyLinTV’s world leading internet TV platform. I firmly believe that this initiative will play an important role in introducing Guangxi to the outside world and enhance Guangxi’s exposure to and cooperation with the world at large.”
KyLinTV president Duan Jianbing said: “We would like to extend our sincere congratulations to the launch of Guangxi TV International on KyLinTV North America. With KyLinTV’s advantages in technology, service and contents, we will continue to maintain our leadership position in the public internet-based IPTV sector and accelerate the widening of the footprint of premier Chinese TV channels such as Guangxi TV International all over the world.”
