Foreign TV series imported into China must last for less than 50 episodes and may not be shown between 7 and 10 p.m., China's TV watchdog said Monday.


The broadcasting time for an imported TV series on a given channel may not surpass one-third of the total amount of time that channel dedicates to broadcasting TV series, according to a circular released by the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT).


In order to enhance the quality of imported TV shows and expand sources for high-definition (HD) TV programs, the HD versions of overseas TV series will receive priority consideration during imports, the circular said.


TV channels may not air unauthorized overseas series in disguised forms, such as through introductions on domestic programs, the circular said.


Programs that are specifically designed to introduce foreign TV series may not show more than 3 minutes of a given series, the circular said.


SARFT will make efforts to avoid situations in which domestic channels lean too heavily on programming from one particular country or region, the circular said.


It also urged all provincial TV administrators to intensify supervision over all TV channels under their jurisdiction and to increase penalties for content providers who violate regulations.

There used to be some Brazilian soap operas on China's TV in the 1990s and they were quite popular.

sometimes, stupidity knows no boundaries...
For such a small business like the TV series market, the Chinese government gave up its formerly strong diplomatic position in fighting protectionism. Now, US-politicians have plenty of excuses to introduce lots of new protectionist measures and stop China from growing -.-
