Chung T'ien Television (CTi TV, traditional Chinese: 中天電視), is a nationwide cable TV network based in Taiwan. It belongs to the China Times group, which also owns China Television (CTV).



Founded in 1994, CTi TV was originally called the Chinese Television Network (traditional Chinese: 傳訊電視). CTN had two main channels, Zhong Tien (Chinese: 中天) and Da Di (Chinese: 大地). On January 30, 1997, ownership switched from Yu Pun Hoi, the current chairman of Nan Hai Corporation Limited (南海控股有限公司), to the KG Group (和信企業團). In 2000, ownership changed once again from KG Group to the Wisdom Group (象山集團), which, at the time, also operated China Television. Hsiang Shan merged CTN with CTV Satellite to form Power TV (traditional Chinese: 勁道數位電視). As part of Power TV, CTV Satellite became Chung T'ien Entertainment, while CTN's Zhong Tien split up into Power TV News (traditional Chinese: 中天新聞台) and Power TV Variety (traditional Chinese: 勁報電視台). Power News eventually changed its name to Chung T'ien Information, which then became Chung T'ien Main in January 2004. After the He Hsin-Hsiang Shan ownership transfer, Ta Ti was granted some degree of autonomy as Ta Ti Television; however, Da Di eventually became part of Videoland Television Network, and changed its name to the Videoland Drama Channel. In June 2002, ownership of Power TV changed once again from Hsiang Shan to the China Times; Power TV changed its name to present-day Chung T'ien Television (CTi TV).
