Members of Falun Gong hijack Chinese TV Station

I saw this article on Slashdot, and I thought it was kinda odd that it was covered months back and just showed up today. Oh well…

Sometime back, China’s main TV station was hacked by members of the Falun Gong. The members broadcasted a banner reading “Falun Gong is good”.

The group managed to interrupt 10 channels and another 10 provincial channels that were sharing the Sinosat-1 satellite.

According to a viewer, the interruption lasted 50 minutes, though the local cable company only quoted a 10 minute interruption.
