The English Club TV channel will be available to TV viewers by DTH, IPTV, Cable and OTT systems. In talking about the new offering, Andrew Semchenko, CEO of the English Club TV Group, said: “According to our surveys, approximately 87% of people think that watching educational programs is an effective tool in studying English. We are confident that learning English through the English Club TV channel and its edutainment services will help provide new opportunities to viewers from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. We are very pleased to begin working with DE Media Group Ltd. Together we are making the tools to study English easily accessible to anyone who has a TV set or mobile device.” DE Media Group, Director Business Development Joe Boka, also commented on the partnership: “We are enthusiastic about the opportunity we have to cooperate with the English Club TV Group to roll out the English Club TV channel in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. This edutainment channel is the perfect candidate for a regional rollout in Chinese speaking territories because of the high demand for English education programs in this region. The English Club TV Group has been creating a lot of original programming, all of which will be marketable in these territories. In addition the English Club TV Group is working on subtitling their original content in Mandarin, which will make these programs even more suitable for the regional market.” As previously reported, meeting the requests of our partners who retransmit an educational channel English Club TV, English Club TV’s encryption has been postponed until March 13, 2014.
