China Is Expanding Its TV Censorship Laws

The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing

The Chinese government has announced it is going to expand its existing television censorship laws to cover online television programmes as well. This means that online programmes that feature smoking, extramarital affairs, gay relationships, underage love, reincarnation, witchcraft, war, or anything that could “hurt the feelings of the Chinese people” will be banned. All Chinese video websites will be legally required to have a member of staff to check and censor all videos, after receiving censorship training from the Chinese State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television. A Chinese government spokesperson tried to justify the expansion of the censorship laws, saying: “Television programs should have not only attractive actors, but they should also demonstrate value. They should not only be easy on the eyes, but also be nurturing for the heart. They should not only entertain, but they should also be educational.”
