Chinese Television 8 (Auckland)

CTV8 – Chinese Television 8

CTV8 owned by the nations gaint Asian Channels provider: World TV (World Television Limited), has last year (13th Aug 07) launched its eighth new channel, but first on regional television in Auckland. It features Movies, News, Gossip and All sorts of Entertainment live streamed from China (and Hong Kong), Macau and Taiwan Television channels only available in Chinese: Mandarin. (( AND NOW AVAILABLE ON ::: TVNZ ONDEMAND ))

I’m wondering why would World TV launch a regional channel in the Auckland region at August 2007 (pretty late), since NZ is shifting into the Digital Platform of television, and the government is declaring a 2012 (or earlier) shutdown of Analogue tv. So Should’nt CTV8 be launched on digital now or else die early????

p.s Building a channel costs heaps (dsnt it?). No reply from world tv for a long long long long time…sigh
