Channel NewsAsia (abbreviated CNA) is Southeast Asian pay television news channel based in Singapore, launched in 1 March 1999.

History

Channel NewsAsia was launched on 1 March 1999, under the Television Corporation of Singapore (renamed Media Corporation of Singapore the following year). The network aired only in Singapore at the beginning, as it was only focused on news from that country. It started to be distributed in Southeast Asia in 28 September 2000.[1]

In 2002, CNA signed a news content deal with Metro TV, in which it allowed the latter to use its video footages on its own network in Indonesia. Several carriage deals were done in 2004, including an arrangement between Mediacorp and China International TV Corporation (CITV) for CNA to be made available in hotels in China from 2005. The deal was signed in May and announced in November. In July, a deal was struck between Mediacorp and the Thailand Cable TV Association for CNA's carriage in the country. A similar deal was made with Malaysian pay-TV operator MiTV the following month.

In August 2012, CNA reached an agreement to be broadcast in Myanmar through satellite-TV operator Sky Net. [2] CNA opened its Myanmar news bureau in the capital Yangon in October 2013 - the bureau officially opened in January 2014 - as only one of four foreign news organisations licensed to operate in the country at the time. [3]

In mid-2015, CNA's reach was placed at 58 million households in 26 countries. [4] CNA began broadcasting in India on 19 November 2015, through satellite operator Tata Sky. The move extended the network's reach to 14 million households in India, Mediacorp and Tata Sky said in a joint press statement. [5]

The network's graphical package was rebranded on 21 January 2013, and began broadcasting 24 hours a day. The network's new city studio in the Marina Bay Financial District was unveiled. [6] In July 2014, CNA opened its Vietnam bureau. [7] Other bureaus the channel had opened at the time were Beijing, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Seoul and Tokyo; unofficial offices were also maintained in other cities such as Mumbai, New Delhi and Washington D.C. [8]

In September 2014, the channel announced plans to expand its studio in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, into a fully functional high-definition (HD) satellite office. [9]

In 2016, CNA's editorial team was merged with their counterparts from Mediacorp's newspaper "Today" and Mediacorp Radio, with an estimated staff of 700 jorunalists. [10]

Programming

CNA's weekly schedule is primarily highlight news programming from 2am to 6pm (UTC+8), with more current affairs, lifestyle magazine and in-depth analysis shows airing in the evening and on weekends.[11]
