Hunan TV's signal covers most of China, including Macau, Hong Kong, Taiwan and overseas as (Hunan STV World) in North America, Japan, Australia, Europe and other countries and regions landing. From 28 September 2009 onward, the channel uses standard high-definition broadcast.
Meanings of the logo
The original idea of the logo of Hunan TV is about a white fish and a golden grain, symblizing that Hunan is a land of abundance and a land flowing with milk and honey. The light yellow and golden color symblize the sprits of Hunan people, including optimistic, brave and creativity. In recent years, audiences gave Hunan TV a nickname as Mango TV, because the shape of its logo looks like a golden mango.
