Phoenix New Media Limited (NYSE:FENG) is Chinese media company which operates a platform from which users can access professional news, general content, and add user-generated content. While most of the content is accessed via mobile and internet-enable devices, Phoenix New Media operates a TV network. The company makes money through two main channels. First, it charges users for paid services such as content subscriptions, pay-per-view videos, and game services. Second, Phoenix New Media sells advertising space on its websites, videos, and mobile devices. 
The business model of most Chinese media companies depend on the growth of the middle class in China and the resulting increase in internet usage in China. However, Phoenix New Media focuses on delivering premium, high quality content to the affluent and highly educated groups in China. While many media companies are relatively new and appeal to younger generations, Phoenix relies on older generations who retain interests in more traditional media sources.
