This week, Verizon will launch the first of these channels – Sino TV – a 24-hour Chinese-language channel.
Said Arthur Liu (Multicultural Radio Broadcasting), president of Sino Television: “We have been successfully working with Verizon over the years in reaching out to the Chinese-American public, informing them of the phone services that Verizon provides. We are excited to now have our television programming on Verizon FiOS TV, and look forward to our successful business relationship with Verizon in the years to come. Now, Chinese-Americans have the opportunity and the convenience to pick a provider that can offer the best in phone, Internet and television services.”
