Second Mongolian-language TV channel begins broadcast


10:40, January 01, 2012

HOHHOT, Jan. 1 (Xinhua) -- The second, non-commercial TV channel to broadcast only in the Mongolian language is launched on Sunday in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, local authorities said.

Run by local Neimenggu Television, the station will provide the region's Mongolian-speaking population with cultural programs and Mongolian-subbed TV operas, said Liu Yongxin, head of the regional administration of radio, film, and television.

No commercial advertisements will be interspersed in its programs, and the channel's funding will come solely from the regional government, Liu said.

"My family's Mandarin is poor, so we only watch the Mongolian-language TV channel. It's great that we have another channel and more programs to watch," said Nayintai, a local Mongolian herdsman.

Prior to the new channel, there had been one TV channel and several radio stations in the region that broadcast in the Mongolian language.

China has a population of 4 million people that learn or speak the Mongolian language, and they mainly live in Inner Mongolia.
