Is anyone familiar with this channel NTD TV?

It is a channel that was created by Falun Gong practitioners and they have a lot of channel branches throughout the world including the North Americas.

They are always badmouthing about mainland China and it's politics. It seems they were created by Taiwanese people as they use traditional characters and speak Mandarin with the Taiwanese accent in a lot of the programmings. A lot of the programmings are from Taiwan, but mainly are traditional Chinese medicines, cooking series, news reports, and related documentaries. They never air any game shows or reality TV series.

But when it comes to airing drama series, they always air so many Korean soap operas dubbed in Taiwanese Mandarin, but only once in a while there is a Taiwanese Mandarin series.

If this company is based off a Taiwanese community, I wonder why they air so many Korean dramas, but so little Taiwanese dramas? Actually, it would be nice if they aired more Taiwanese dramas, which a lot of them are interesting to watch.

I wonder if anyone knows of this.

Yes it is funded by FaLun Gong, so they do not use mainland entertainment products. It was created (mainly) by mainlanders, who hated China government.

Taiwan does not make a lot of (decent) TV series nowadays.
Their main target market is Taiwanese and other non-mainland immigrants. Most recent immigrants from mainland China do not like them.

If you're in America why would you want to watch Taiwanese shows? They are awful.

Do yourself a favor, tune in NBC and watch This Is Us.
