Xinwen Lianbo （Chinese:新闻联播, literally "News Simulcast"） is the main news broadcast of Chinese TV network CCTV. Every day at 19:00 GMT+8, all Chinese local TV stations' main channels are required to transmit the broadcast.
Xinwen Lianbo had no anchors until late 1978.
From January 1, 1996, Xinwen Lianbo began to broadcast live, though some long oral reports are still broadcast by tape.
