China Global Television Network, or CGTN, is an international media organization launched on December 31, 2016. It is the international division of CCTV, which - along with CNR and CRI - will collectively be known as the China Media Group.
CGTN's six TV channels – English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Russian and Documentary – are available in more than 170 countries and regions worldwide.
CGTN seeks to cover China and the world, reporting the news from a global perspective. It seeks to offer a distinctive alternative to the international information flow. CGTN aims to differentiate itself from other media organizations by providing more balanced reporting. The platforms focus on nations, regions, and stories that are often underreported by other international media.
