China’s Xinhua TV has launched a streaming service that will offer Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and his wife, Peng Liyuan, live-streamed events from their home in New York.
The service, dubbed Xinhua Live, will be available in the US beginning in January.
The service will include live-blogging, podcasts, live videos and other content.
Xinhua Live will include a Chinese version of the United States-China Business Council’s annual business and investment summit.
China’s Xinping news agency announced on Wednesday that the service would launch in the United State in the first half of next year, with other Chinese companies expected to follow.
The service will be the first time a premier’s wife and a wife of a Chinese leader will stream live events live in the country.
Xi Jinping’s wife Peng Liyao, who is in her 30s, and his son, Deng Xiaoping, have hosted a number of high-profile Chinese leaders during Xi’s tenure.
The Xi family has also hosted several state visits to the United Kingdom.
The Xi family, which has a net worth of $6.5 billion, is one of the world’s richest dynasties and has ruled China for more than 30 years.
The state-owned China News Service, which is owned by the Xi family and has long been used by the government to report news, has been criticized for promoting propaganda.
