MTV China launches in Hong Kong

MTV ChinaViacom International has launched a number of channels in Hong Kong, including MTV China, through a distribution deal with local broadcaster TVB.

MTV China, Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. will now be broadcast on TVB Network Vision through the Hutchison Global Communications networks.

TVB Network Vision subscribers can access Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. on Channel 65 and 66, respectively, and MTV China on Channel 38.

“We are delighted to add a new carriage partner in TVB Pay Network Vision, and to see the expansion of our brands’ presence in Hong Kong,” said VIMN Asia’s executive vice president and managing director, Indra Suharjono.

“We’re particularly excited to introduce Nick Jr. to Hong Kong and to help fill a gap in preschoolers’ programming here, which offers parents a trusted edutainment channel for their young children to learn while they ‘play’ with well-loved characters like Dora the Explorer and new properties like The Paw Patrol.”

TVB Network Vision’s CEO, Felix To, said: “We at TVB Network Vision are very excited to bring VIMN’s high quality programming services to TVB Network Vision’s subscribers on our new fibre-optic distributed platform. The addition of these channels, following our investments in our new fiber infrastructure demonstrates our commitment to deliver the best entertainment and education to our subscribers.”
