Ban on foreign TV productions not that dramatic - Jeremy Goldkorn

Jeremy Goldkorn
Much attention has gone to a recent ban of foreign TV-productions on Chinese TV. Overdone, tells media watcher Jeremy Goldkorn in LA-Times. The ban will not change the life of China's TV audience.

LA Times:
Jeremy Goldkorn, a China media analyst and founder of the online magazine Danwei.com, said the series of regulations may push younger viewers toward Internet-based forms of entertainment, which are generally more difficult to control. 
Goldkorn said there are too few foreign shows on Chinese airwaves for the new limits to seriously change the habits of most Chinese TV viewers. 
"It's not going to affect the hundreds of millions of people who just turn on the TV and leave it on all day," he said.
