CCTV started considering English-language international news programming on 1 January 1979, at the start of China’s “Reform and opening up” period. English news bulletins commenced on CCTV-2 in 1986 and became accessible to overseas viewers when they moved to CCTV-4 in February 1991. CCTV-9 began broadcasting across China on 25 September 2000, becoming the country’s first all-English television station. On 1 January 2003, CCTV-9 arrived the United States cable market, as part of a deal that allowed AOL, Time Warner, and News Corporation contact to cable systems in Guangdong. In its early years, CCTV-9 broadcast English language news bulletins and cultural interest shows for most of each day, and exposed mostly reruns during the overnight hours in China. One of its biggest projects was covering the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Until April 2010, CCTV-9 was a miscellaneous general interest channel featuring news, travel programming, and language training. But on the 26th of that month, CCTV-9 was relaunched as a 24-hour English-language news service, and its name was changed to “CCTV News.” On 31 December 2016 at midday Beijing time, the channel was relaunched as CGTN (China Global Television Network), and new programs debuted.
