TVB (電視廣播有限公司)


TVB (Television Broadcasts Limited, commonly known as TVB (無綫), was founded as the first wireless commercial television station in Hong Kong) reached out to the Overseas Chinese communities as early as in the 80s. Boston was one of the lucky city to had access to their shows/dramas. Before my parents immigrated to the States, they had watched TVB drama series. So for them to able to watch dramas from here feels like home. We had basic American channels but we only watched for weather.  Still to this day, my parents are still watching TVB even though they have more choices with streaming.

Thanks to TVB, that is how I got my fluent Cantonese from. I had received a lot of compliments of my perfect accent. To any people who wants to learn Cantonese, just watch TVB dramas.
