Previously, Nguyen Nhat Hoa, head of the educational programmes producing centre, said this was, indeed, a special educational channel.

"We bring inspiring facts into all the programmes we produce, so that students will learn from our channel. But they must first develop an interest in subjects and study on their own," Hoa said.

In the first phrase of broadcasting, the channel's targeted audience group will be children in kindergarten and primary schools. It will also offer programmes for high schoolers, adults, ethnic minorities and the disabled.

VTV7 is scheduled to begin broadcasting on January 1, 2016.
