Hunan Television will once again broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest live online via their Mango TV platform.
It’s been confirmed that for a fourth year Hunan Television will be broadcasting the Eurovision Song Contest. The channel which aired the contest live in China for the first time in 2015, has built up interest in the competition in China, sending a commentary team and delegation to the contest annually.
Hunan Television will be broadcasting the contest live online. Chinese viewers will be able to watch via Mango TV, Hunan Television’s online platform. To date China and the United States have been confirmed as broadcasting the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.
The Eurovision Song Contest was first broadcast in China in November 2013, when CCTV aired both the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 and 2012 on delay and in multiple parts.
A total of 43 countries will take part in the 2018 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. This includes Russia, as they return to the contest after a year break. The 43 participating countries are:
- Czech Republic
- FYR Macedonia
- The Netherlands
- San Marino
- United Kingdom
The official slogan for this year’s contest is “All Aboard!”, and was chosen to represent a celebration of Europe and music. The slogan was inspired by Lisbon’s longstanding history as an important global seaport and the importance of the ocean in Portugal’s history. The ocean has connected Portugal to the rest of the world for centuries, and this connectivity is intended to invite people from across the world to come together to celebrate music and Eurovision.
