China's state broadcaster to open U.S. studio: report

NEW YORK ( - China Central Television, the country’s state-owned broadcaster, is opening a new hub in Washington, D.C., from which it will broadcast its English-language TV service, according to the Financial Times.

CCTV, which produces news shows widely viewed as government propaganda, expects to begin broadcasting from a D.C. studio by the middle of 2012 and produce up to six hours of original programing a day.

The channel is now available through cable and satellite providers in areas with large Chinese populations.

CCTV has already built a studio in Nairobi for its English-language channel to reach viewers in Africa.

In addition to its Chinese and English businesses, it also offers channels in Arabic, French and Russian.
