TV se­ries may get rat­ings sys­tem from watch­dog

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

China’s me­dia watch­dog says it is look­ing into pro­vid­ing rat­ing sys­tems for tele­vi­sion se­ries. Con­tro­ver­sial works may be aired on des­ig­nated chan­nels and at later time pe­ri­ods.

Deputy direc­tor Tian Jin of State Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Ra­dio, Film and Tele­vi­sion (SARFT) said it has be­gun re­view­ing the rat­ing sys­tems of more than 10 coun­tries and re­gions and is con­sid­er­ing des­ig­nat­ing dif­fer­ent broad­cast times for dif­fer­ent pro­grams and es­tab­lish­ing spe­cific chan­nels for pro­grams un­suit­able for mi­nors.

China’s rat­ing sys­tem will divide tele­vi­sion se­ries into three cat­e­gories: those un­suit­able for mi­nors, those with parental ad­vi­sory and those ap­pro­pri­ate for all au­di­ences to see.
