CCTV say they'll have business news at the top of the hour, so that doesn't sound hopeful.

They will probably break the news to show the launch live.

Also try http://tv.cntv.cn/live/cctv13/ for the Chinese version. They are replaying programs at this time so maybe, just maybe....

I wonder if anyone is watching their network traffic as a bunch of American IP addresses dial in to watch a rocket launch.  :P

Has anyone seen an official launch mass for the Chang'E 5 precursor spacecraft?   And/or the descent module on its own?

Clearly the Chinese need to get their priorities right as a major space-faring nation.

China must be making around 15 launches a year now. The relevant authorities should start streaming these on their own sites.

Very good. Just a shame they didn't bother to stream it.
