This is the official app for China Global Television Network (CGTN), new international media organization. It was launched by the national broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) on December 31, 2016.

At CGTN, we cover the whole globe, reporting news from a Chinese perspective. Our mission is to create a better understanding of international events across the world, bridging continents and bringing a more balanced view to global news reporting.

Ultimately, we believe facts should speak for themselves and are committed to neutral, objective reporting.

CGTN brings you:
• Breaking news
• Exclusive stories
• Comprehensive coverage
• In-depth analysis

The world's biggest stories in the palm of your hand
Features include:
• Categorized reports

Good content, Terrible Navigation

This app has good content but navigation and drill down capabilities are lacking. For example, when watching the live stream you have no way of knowing which program is currently playing or where it is in the lineup of programs shown below it. Your local time is not factored in any of broadcast times shown, nor is the current program highlighted in the list. Plus, pressing on a program to read more about it does not work, so all you have to go by is a general title. And if you miss a program that was broadcast earlier in the day you cannot replay it to catch up.
