Subtitles in Chinese News?


Just wondering, does anyone know why Chinese TV news programs don’t have subtitles? Because from what I’ve seen, it seems like everything else does, e.g. dramas, reality shows, documentaries. Is it because the news presenters speak standard Mandarin? Or that there is already so much text on the screen at the same time when they’re reporting the news? Or they speak too fast for it to be feasible? Or something else? (Or perhaps they do and I’ve been incredibly blind to it, hah?)

Thanks a ton.


Good question! Sounds great!


My guess is because every region/dialect has their own news programs.
