Talentvision (Traditional Chinese: 城市電視, Simplified Chinese: 城市电视, Pinyin: chéngshì diànshì Jyutping: sing4si5 din6si6) is a Canadian Mandarin Chinese Category A specialty channel. It is owned by the Vancouver-based Fairchild Media Group (a subsidiary of the Fairchild Group) and Television Broadcasts Limited. Talentvision's studios are located at Aberdeen Centre in the Golden Village district along with Fairchild TV and Fairchild Radio, in Richmond of Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Talentvision TV features programming from Mainland China as well as Taiwan. It also has a Korean and Vietnamese block of programming. Originally it was a regional TV station only available in British Columbia but it is now available nationally across Canada.
Talentvision TV is the first Mandarin channel in Canada and it first went on the air in 1993 (together with Fairchild TV). It started out as a channel with mixed Cantonese and Mandarin content. Originally the broadcasting content was 60% Cantonese and 40% Mandarin. It started broadcasting entirely in Mandarin from June 1998 onwards. All of the Cantonese programs were transferred to Fairchild TV.
Talentvision TV produces two hours of local news on the weekdays and one hour of local news on the weekends. The newscasts air at 7:30 PM and at 11:30 PM and are anchored out of their studios in Richmond.
