CCTV9 Documentary expands worldwide

China’s CCTV9 Documentary channel started broadcasting over a year ago and now reaches over 25 million homes in 60 countries.

The channel is available in both English and Chinese and has two versions, one for the domestic market and one for international distribution.

CCTV9 Documentary showed a high profile at this year’s MIPTV. One of the aims is to expand its worldwide reach, another to foster more coproduction deals.

The Chinese broadcaster, which boasts a daily peak audience of 94 million in China alone, already has many coproduction deals in place with the BBC Worldwide, NHK, ITV, France Televisions, National Geographic, KBS and many others.

The international version, also available in both Chinese and English, aims to offer a window on China to the world.
