China: AP expands video news offering with CCTV+
March 7, 2018
As global interest in China continues to grow, The Associated Press (AP) has extended its existing relationship with CCTV+, the video news agency of China Central Television, to bring its comprehensive video news coverage to the online AP Video Hub platform.
AP Video Hub customers will now be able to access and use CCTV+ video news from China on a daily basis. CCTV+ is well known globally for the quality and depth of its video news coverage in China. In addition to covering top news stories, the network is recognized for its breadth of coverage, including offering the Chinese perspective on local and global news. Recent high-profile stories include coverage of the 19th National People’s Congress in Beijing, US President Donald Trump’s visit to China, and the Sanchi oil tanker collision in the East China Sea.
Paul Shanley, director of business development and partnerships at AP, said: “By extending our relationship with CCTV+, the AP is providing unrivaled video news content from China. This means we are continuing to deliver on our mission to provide our Video Hub customers with the most extensive selection of global video news possible.”
