SPH MediaWorks Channel U

SPH MediaWorks' Channel U ( zh-sp |s=优频道 |p=yōu píndào) was a Chinese-language television channel in Singapore which began broadcasts in 6 May2001. As a result of the media merger with MediaCorp, the channel is now run by MediaCorp from 1 January 2005 under the same name.

Although initially having to rely largely on imported content, the channel was quick to introduce innovative and well-received programmes despite the limited size of its talent base compared to the larger MediaCorp. The channel was so successful, that it has managed to receive ratings as high as, or exceeding that of MediaCorp TV Channel 8 before transferring to MediaCorp.


Since it launch not up to 4 year, Channel U had some awards nominated from PROMAX & BDA Asia Awards and Asia Television Awards because of the creative and the standard of the programming maintain. Example like the logo design and the TV advertising. In December 2002, Channel U won the "Channel of the Year Award" in Asia Television Awards.
