TCL Electronics (HKEX: 1070) announced Wednesday that its subsidiary, Falcon Network Technology, and tech giant Tencent (OTCBB: TCEHY; HKEX: 0700) have jointly launched a Learn-at-Home program on TCL TV.

The company said the broadcast provides educational content for free for a limited time, including classes led by top tutors. On Day One of the program, the number of viewers reached more than 120,000, as reported by Chinese news media CSDN.
