FALLS CHURCH, VA- Blue Ocean Network (BON) launches nationally on MHz Worldview in July 2013. A newscast from the broadcaster will air each weekday in English.
Blue Ocean Network (BON) is the first and only private English-language television network to offer independent programming produced exclusively from and about China.
In August, BON programming on MHz will expand to offer a 30-minute program in the national MHz Worldview morning news block as well as in the evening news schedule.
BON's exclusive content provides an entertaining and engaging way for international viewers to expand their views and understanding of China and its people.
BON is 24/7 news, culture and lifestyle network, also bringing a China business-insider resource packed with the latest insights for global business people.
Frederick Thomas, MHz Chief Executive says, “We’re delighted to bring Blue Ocean Network aboard our fleet of premier international news broadcasters and we know our viewers will appreciate BON’s in-depth insight and information from and about China.”
BON Chairman Dr. Justin Gu says, "As the first independent English television network coming out of China, we are positioned to present China in a different perspective: What are the real living conditions of the ordinary Chinese people? How Chinese people see America? How will China’s economic development affect the rest of the world? How will China’s rise impact the world order? MHz has a great vision of being a ‘global story-teller’ and we are proud to be part of it. On BON, you will find true stories about China you have never heard before. "
Nationally, the BON content will be available on MHz Worldview in more than half of the top-20 US TV markets, nearly 40 M households via MHz Worldview digital broadcast and cable affiliates, as well as telco and DirecTV.
