Tibet Web TV Launched

The Central Tibetan Administration and Tibetan diaspora have launched Tibet Online, a web television site that will devote most of its coverage to the teachings of the Dalai Lama. However Tibetans inside Tibet may not be able to access the Web television site due to the Great Firewall. Looks like for now the website can be viewed inside the Great Firewall, though for how long, who knows!
“Distance often uproots people from their social and cultural moorings. This online TV could well become a rallying point for Tibetans worldwide,” said Kalon Lobsang Nyandak Zayul, director of the documentary Joy of Living. Tibetonline.tv also features an archive of documentary films on Tibet.

“In the light of changing social patterns, particularly the young, increasingly relying on the Internet for news and information, the web TV will go a long way in getting across the policies and works of the Central Tibetan Administration, realizing thereby one of the cardinal objectives of the Kashag: transparency,” Mr. Zayul said.
