Xinhua News Agency is the official press agency of the People’s Republic of China. Xinhua is the biggest news agency in China, founded on 1 November 1931. Xinhua is a ministry-level media unit, affiliated to the Central Committee of the CCP and the State Council.Its 500 million website includes the website of the Central News Agency as well as news, information, entertainment and lifestyle sites, as well as a set of micro-blogging/social media platforms. The mission statement of the CGTN is “to develop the cultural and social level like the Chinese nation, pioneer the use of electronic media to promote the people’s interest, carry out the benevolent purpose, inspire the people and build the strong civilization.”
CGTN absorbs all the English language international television channels from the CPC and the State Council and thus expands the space available for global content production and distribution.
In 2006, CGTN carried out an overview study on International Media Market, a 20-country multi-media market analysis study, a survey study on International Media Ownership, a study about best practice in broadcasting and a survey on cable television ownership among over 200 companies in China and Japan. According to the CGTN website, analysts from the study cited Cable Television and Broadcasting as the industries that are most likely to take up global media spots.
The extent of CGTN coverage varied by market. It was mentioned in 18 international English language newspapers. It was mentioned in the online edition of The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Economist, Forbes and the China Daily. It was mentioned on the the Instagram account of CCTV and on the WeChat account of Hunan TV. It was also mentioned on the official micro-blogging micro-service of the China General Business Daily.
In addition, CGTN screened more than 30 Chinese movies and programs, reaching something around 2.6 million viewers, according to the 2015 annual report of CGTN. The CGTN subscribers rate is said to be around 61%.

The first 100 episodes lasted between 150 and 200 minutes. The network employs a similar vertical format to the premiering Chinese streaming service SUCCES (73 hours in one day), “CGTN” maintains an original format similar to all Chinese streaming services, and unlike entertainment traditional media such as TV or cinema, “CGTN” has no longer been developing.
The “CGTN” digital platform currently consists of a “trial” version, which offers limited streaming services, advertisements within apps, and chapters from the completed movies to be viewed online for 300 RMB a month. The exact cost of subscription varies by the service and is currently RMB 598 (in addition to a standard subscription fee of RMB 699 for Prime members).

The licensed services currently offer a variety of video genres, category-defining content such as documentaries and award-winning entertainment content, and blockbuster Baohua films. There are categories such as “Historically Significant” and “Culture & Art”. Innovation in streaming content, such as ambient sounds, poetry, and user-generated content, also plays a big part in the content lineup.
