TV in China
 
Can someone here explain more of the use of the abbreviation TV in china?

If you ask a chinese native / say to a chinese native TV...would he/she know it? is the term TV common...not common to china?


Thanks,

Michael

Chinese people know that what is "tv" .

"旅游"(travel),'酒店"(hotels),"tv" ; those are hot keywords in China.

compare with the "旅游,酒店,tv"search volume ,
the "tv" search volume in China is quite good now.

the "tv" search volume will be growing very rapidly in the future.
