|VTV7 will focus on full-life educational programmes.
HA NOI (VNS) — The launch of VTV7, the new national education channel, has been announced during a press conference held at Viet Nam Television (VTV) yesterday.
VTV7 is scheduled to begin broadcasting on January 1, 2016.
Having been produced by the television's educational programmes producing centre, VTV7 is a distinctive channel focusing on education and supporting students, especially from remote areas around the country, to learn their school subjects with the assistance of television.
"Although VTV7 is the youngest channel of ours, it is also the one that took us the longest time to nurture. The idea of creating it has been set for 20 years. We are proud to have an educational channel to be aired nationally," said Pham Viet Tien, deputy director of VTV.
Previously, Nguyen Nhat Hoa, head of the educational programmes producing centre, said this was, indeed, a special educational channel.
"We bring inspiring facts into all the programmes we produce, so that students will learn from our channel. But they must first develop an interest in subjects and study on their own," Hoa said.
In the first phrase of broadcasting, the channel's targeted audience group will be children in kindergarten and primary schools. It will also offer programmes for high schoolers, adults, ethnic minorities and the disabled. — VNS
