Digital TV Programs Bring China, Africa Together

Chinese TV shows broadcast in Africa have helped local viewers learn about the world, enriched their lives and promoted international ties.


For example, the Chinese drama A Beautiful Daughter-in-law Era has become a major blockbuster in many African nations.


Chinese President Xi Jinping gave a speech in Tanzania in 2013, saying that A Beautiful Daughter-in-law Era provided an example for Tanzanian audiences to learn about the daily lives of Chinese people.


The show's themes of marriage and the family have enabled Tanzanian audiences to transcend cultural differences and share joy and sorrow of an ordinary Chinese family.


 The show is an effective  form of China-Africa cultural exchange and communication. 


Its distributor, Chinese media company StarTimes, also provides a wide selection of affordable digital TV programs 24 hours a day. 


The company's service has provided opportunities for over 10 million ordinary households in Africa to watch high-quality digital TV programs with a monthly subscription from U.S.$ 2-5.


In future, China's digital TV businesses will further penetrate into rural areas of Africa, and some 10,112 villages in 25 African countries will get access to satellite TV, whilst 200,000 African families will receive relevant donations.
