Q: What happened to CCTV9? Can you believe I miss it?

I woke up a few weeks ago and noticed CCTV9 was missing form my TV.  Video noise now takes it place. I figured they moved it to another channel so I let my TV do an auto search and cannot find it. What happened?  Where did it go and why? I can get by without it but I miss my daily dose of propaganda to balance out my daily dose of CNN BS that is trying to program people to judge economies by stock market performance.

I am led to believe that  TV in China is pay TV

maybe somebody took it off because they didn't want to pay for it?

If you are referring to the English language channel of CCTV, it is now called CCTVNews.

It was still working for me as of yesterday.  Got to indulge in a nice propaganda piece about how the US has the highest per capita prison population in the world, and how China has fewer.  Wonder why....*facepalm*.

I dunno. Yes the media promotes a baseless emphasis on stock market performance.

the english was never really that good anyway, and the commercials promoting it was very arrogant.

I only answer this because it was hanging out on the right hand side of my screen.

CCTV News is now on channel 16.

I love it a lot.  

How bout that chick Jenny Lei....now she's named Cheng Lei.  Same for Phillip Yin. Now he's Yin .... 

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

But the person I really miss is not Wang Meng Meng, as she's always on my mind... but that good 'ol boy James Chao.  I mean, where is he now??

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
