International Channel Shanghai, better known as ICS, is the foreign-language cable channel of Shanghai Media Group. Long before the parent company was known as SMG, Shanghai Television Station began producing the English-language “News at Ten” in 1986. On January 1, 2008, ICS replaced the Shanghai Broadcasting MusicChannel as a 24-hour English service (with one weekly program in Japanese). In 2010, the channel replaced its “Red Sun Seagull” logo from the old Oriental TV channel with the STV “Magnolia” logo. The channel’s news department produces a Monday-through-Saturday news program "Shanghai Live"() at 9:00pm, and the weekly business/financial news program "Money Talks" on Saturday nights. On December 8, 2011, the Asian Television Awards named Shanghai Live "Best News Programme" of 2011.
Other locally-produced programs include:
Bridge to Japan 中日之橋
You Are the Chef
Way to Wellness
Minds of Millionaires
The channel also co-produced two seasons of “The Amazing Race – China Rush,” whose first season was "highly commended" at the 2011 Asian Television Awards.
