Watchdog further regulates online TV 09 July 2015

SARFT

 

China’s top media and television watchdog on Wednesday reportedly asked licensed online content providers of Internet TV platform and set-top boxes to rectify violations, including tweeting video website applications or installing Internet browsers in TVs.

The State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) issued a notice asking the seven State-owned licensed Internet TV content providers in China to stop selling set-top boxes which could install applications through a USB port, according to techweb.com.cn. Currently, people can watch movies, TV channels, including those unavailable on cable TVs like CNN and BBC, through such applications.

The watchdog has also asked providers to halt video and radio applications or applications which allows mobile phones to be used as TV remote controls.”These regulations would stop TV viewers who had bought Internet TV sets or set-top boxes from downloading unauthorized applications and watch uncensored content, which could affect the sales of set-top boxes,” a source from one manufacturer told the Global Times.

This is not the first time SARFT has regulated Internet TVs.
