Reports from Reuters shows that AOL has launched a test portal for the "American Chinese" user at http://chinese.aol.com/. The portal is going to offer "full-length features and episodes of TV series from China" with up to 20-hours of video for download at any time. AOL made it clear that they are only focusing on the American Chinese market with this portal.

The Washington Examiner quotes an AOL spokesperson as saying; "We're not entering the Chinese market...Right now it's a domestic initiative serving a domestic audience." The Chinese portal also features "Web search capabilities, blogs, e-mail and news from North America, Europe and Asia."
