Channels Focusing on Mainland China
2. Chinese TV Channels Focusing on Taiwan
3. Chinese TV Channels with Neutral Viewpoints
There are numerous Chinese Television channels in the US. Some of the Chinese TV channels are public so that everyone can see it. Examples of such public Chinese TV channels include Channel 18 of Los Angeles, etc.
Most Chinese TV Channels in the US, however, require cable television services or satellite discs. For example, if you would like to watch China Central Television (CCTV) channels, then you would have to contact your local cable company to see if they provide the service. If they do not, your only option would be to install a satellite disc. For more information about installing Chinese TV Channels below, please visit Phoenix Satellite Television Programs
Because of the diversity of Chinese population in the US, Chinese TV shows, programs, channels and stations are divided as follows:
Chinese TV Channels Focusing on Mainland China
These include Chinese TV stations that broadcast news from mainland China, such as news from CCTV. They also broadcast TV programs from China or Hong Kong. Although the quality of the programs from mainland China is improving, the news from China is still somewhat biased and is still considered not neutral.
Chinese TV Channels Focusing on Taiwan
These include Chinese language TV stations that broadcast news from Taiwan, such as news from major news networks of Taiwan. They also broadcast variety shows from Taiwan, such as "Super Sunday" or others. Although the quality of the variety shows from Taiwan is much higher than the quality of the programs from mainland China, the news from Taiwan is considered biased because they frequently focus on the negative side of the news from mainland China, and they frequently focus on the political problems of Taiwan. It is seemly understandable because Taiwan is such a small place, (just bigger than the size of Los Angeles County). If they don't broadcast or exaggerate the political news, what would they do to attract viewers and advertisers?
