Found a good Teochew Cable TV site online from China.

 

It's called 潮商衛視網. You can watch programs and pop music in Teochew online now.

Enjoy! Feel free to comment on it.

Why this channel use exclusively Traditional Chinese font? Looks like most of the host/hostess are Mainlander and all the scene are shot in China. That's why I find it strange.

Is the guy in pink T shirt speaking Teochew or Hailufeng dialect? The way he speaks either in Mandarin or his dialect sounds very 本省Bensheng Taiwanese (like Chen Shui Bian), even his demeanor also very bensheng Taiwanese. He can easily blend in DDP rally in the street of Taiwan without drawing any attention.

I believe the man is speaking the Shanwei local dialect (judging from the words he used-- mixture of words that are more typically Teochew and words that are more typically Zhangzhou Hokkien).. his accent is rather Teochew though.. Most Hailufeng people I have heard of is somewhere more in the middle between a Teochew and Zhangzhou accent 

 

Still it is rather easy to understand, unlike the Chaoyang accent which can be hard on my ears at times


plain amateur, here to make mistakes, make a fool of ownself, and hopefully learn something in the process

If I am not mistaken, this cable channel is a Hong Kong-based channel, hence the use of Traditional Chinese font.

The guy in pink is 蚝爷. His name 陈汉宗, he is from Haifeng, working in the food industry I believe. So he should be speaking his own Haifeng dialect.

I think this cable tv was invested by Hongkong Teochews. That's why it's in traditional Chinese.

Should be. The TV channel HQ is in Hong Kong, according to their webpage.

How close between Teochew and Hailufeng dialect are? Are they  mutually intelligible? I read Hailufeng dialect is closer to Hokkien and easily understood by Hokkien speaker while Teochew is harder for Hokkien speaker to understand which is strange because Chaozhou is geographically closer to southern Fujian than Hailufeng.

tone wise they are quite close.. hailufeng will sound like Fujian minnan dialects spoken in teochew accent.. the main distinguisher will be the vocabulary - example hailufeng will use 'sui' for 'beautiful' rather than 'ngia' not use 'lai' for 'home' (i.e. not distinguishing 'house' and 'home' like most minnan dialects) etc.

 

also they will tend to follow zhangzhou hokkien pronunciations like 'hi' for fish (hɯ in most of teochew) 'bei' for buy (boi in teochew) 'hong' for wind 'huang'. One other thing I noticed is that they also use the dimunitive '-a' like in Fujian minnan  eg. 'kao -a' 狗仔. This is not found in Teochew too
