Observation: TV in China

Recently, all the teacher’s apartments were upgraded to the new digital cable TV system. We now have a set-top box with almost 100 channels, up from the 10 or so we had before. Unfortunately, that’s 90 new channels in Chinese. There’s still only one English TV channel, CCTV9, and it rarely has much worth watching. There are a couple new sports channels, which is good for the teachers who are into that sort of thing, but they hold little interest for Nichole or I.

So, after much fanfare and hassle, we have moved into the next generation of TV technology: 100 channels, nothing to watch.

    “to Nichole and ME”, not “to Nichole and I”. It is the objective case. But besides that, I am happy that you can’t spend much time watching TV. What is a liripipe?
