China Central Television or Chinese Central Television, commonly abbreviated as CCTV (Chinese: 中国中央电视台 pinyin: Zhōngguó Zhōngyāng Diànshìtái), is the major broadcast television network in Mainland China. Organizationally, it is a subministry of the People's Republic of China's central government within the State Administration of Radio, Television, and Film and as such it does not have any editorial independence from the PRC government.

Its news reporting follows parameters directed by the Propaganda Department of the Communist Party of China. Most of its programming, however, is a mix of comedy and dramatic programming, the majority of which consists of Chinese soap operas. Like many media outlets in China, CCTV has had its state subsidy reduced dramatically in the 1990s, and hence finds it necessary to balance its role as a government agency with the practical fact that it must attract viewers so that it can sell commercial advertising.

In searching for viewers, CCTV has found itself in competition with local television stations (which are also state run) which have been creating increasingly large media groups in order to compete with CCTV.

Are we talking closed circuit, or China's propaganda network?

Many stories of criminals destroying the camera with their faces exposed, not realizing that the recorder was located elsewhere.....

Closed captioning.....you know how when you're watching TV and right before the show a voice says "closed captioning provided by......" and you'll see a symbol that looks like this...

or this.....

and the words spoken appear on the TV screen like this....

It's a service provided for the hearing impaired.....



Closed circuit TV is a system that is recording and showing what's going on in a particular place....for example, the bank of TV sets you see in the security office of a business, that is showing what is going on in various areas of the building.

Or when you walk in a Walgreens and can see youself on a TV screen, and you check yourself out to see how fat you are.

Lol thanks...
It's weird,
my parents (who don't have good English) always have those subtitle things on even though they can hear perfectly fine. They jsut say Americans talk too fast and then can't follow along with what they are saying unless they are reading. Or when people on TV talk and they have the worst accents ever... it's only understandable when you read.
So closed caption is a word for when you watch TV and you see what is going on behind the person who is talking? Or is it another for for subtitles?

It's the words.

Like I said, it's for the hearing impaired, or, if you have trouble keeping up with what's being said.

You basically said that yourself in your response love. I don't believe you could have thought it was when you can see people in the background.

come on.
