China Bans Ads


China will ban TV sta­tions from air­ing com­mer­cials dur­ing broad­cast of TV dra­mas as the gov­ern­ment tight­ens con­trol over media and the in­ter­net.

TV sta­tions could face a rep­ri­mand or the loss of their com­mer­cial broad­cast rights if they air any advertising dur­ing the 45-minute episodes.

The rule is meant to “lift the stan­dards of public cul­tural ser­vices” and “pro­tect the peo­ple’s ba­sic cul­tural rights,” the reg­u­la­tor said.
