New Tang Dynasty TV now on KYAZ 51.4
Independent Chinese-language broadcaster New Tang Dynasty Television is now airing on KYAZ 51.4.
The New York-based station was founded in 2001 with the goal of reporting on what other Chinese TV networks would not. “NTD fills an important void in Chinese language media, boldly investigating topics like abuses of power and human rights violations, and making this information available both inside and outside China,” says the station on its website.
The station claims that “no [other] major Chinese language television network reports with complete independence on China. The Chinese communist regime has long dictated politically related content for all TV stations inside mainland China. And starting in the 1990s, it began using its economic and political clout to pressure Chinese TV stations outside China to avoid reporting on the most “sensitive” China-related topics.”
A live stream of the station is available.
Until today, the 51.4 subchannel has consisted of a still slide advising viewers looking for Azteca América programming to tune to 51.1.
