Sohu Video is ready to welcome the first family of Springfield to China. In a multi-year deal with Twentieth Century Fox TV Distribution, the company is now the first official Chinese-based provider of The Simpsons. The deal includes the Chinese premiere of season 26, which begins in the U.S. on Sept. 28. The cartoon will also be subtitled in Mandarin. "The Simpsons is a unique television property, which has the ability to transcend worldwide cultural boundaries and has the capability to easily translate into any language." said Kaner, the president of Fox. "We are excited to expand our existing and long-standing partnership with Sohu to allow audiences in China to watch one of the greatest TV shows ever made."
