Hunan Television or Hunan TV (Chinese: 湖南卫视; pinyin: Húnán Wèishì) is a provincial satellite TV station. It launched in January 1997 and is currently China's second-most-watched channel, second only to CCTV-1, owned by China Central Television, although Hunan STV occasionally overtook CCTV-1 in ratings.[1] Hunan TV's signal covers most of China, including Macau, Hong Kong, Taiwan and overseas as (Hunan STV World) in North America, Japan, Australia, Europe and other countries and regions landing. From 28 September 2009 onward, the channel uses standard high-definition broadcast.

The original idea of the logo of Hunan TV is about a white fish and a golden grain, symbolizing that Hunan is a land of abundance and a land flowing with milk and honey. The light yellow and golden color symbolize the spirits of Hunan people, including optimistic, brave and creativity. In recent years, audiences gave Hunan TV a nickname as Mango TV which is accepted by Hunan TV as an official byname, because the shape of its logo looks like a golden mango. The nickname is especially useful as there are 22 provinces and the official channel name can be easily confused with other television channels.
