Propeller TV is broadcast on SKY Channel 189 and is the premium channel for the UK-China community.
Recently Propeller TV was launched on the CIBN platform (China International Broadcasting Network) in China and continues to broadcast across a UK higher education television network covering 230,000 students.
The channel was created with UK government investment and began broadcasting in 2005. In 2009 Propeller TV was bought by the Xiking Group, Beijing.
Propeller TV relaunched during April 2013 with a new weekly schedule and content produced in both the UK and China.
The channel launched on 6 February 2006 on British Sky Broadcasting's satellite platform, Sky.
It was run by the Image Channel Company Ltd, a subsidiary of the Grimsby Institute in the United Kingdom until it was acquired in June 2009 by the Xiking Group, after six months of talks. There are plans to overhaul the channel and produce programmes promoting Chinese culture, brands and people, with some possibly broadcast in Chinese.
