2019 Spring Festival Gala to embrace advanced technology and innovative performances

The 2019 Spring Festival Gala is embracing today's hottest technologies, like virtual reality (VR), artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G network, as organizers continue to inject new blood into the show that has been an annual fixture of the Chinese New Year celebrations since 1983.

The announcement was made by the China Media Group (CMG) at a press conference in Beijing on Thursday. CMG is a broadcasting platform formed in April 2018 through the merger of China Central Television (CCTV), China National Radio (CNR) and China Radio International (CRI).

The Spring Festival Gala is a four-hour extravaganza broadcast live on the eve of the Chinese New Year, which falls on February 4 this year.
