China takes steps to curb foreign content on video sites

BEIJING (Reuters) - China repeated its intention to tighten control of foreign content on online streaming sites, a move that will require websites that stream foreign films and television shows to register their content for approval in advance.

If websites do not seek approval for their foreign programmes by April 1, 2015, they won't be able to broadcast them online, said the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT) on Friday, which first unveiled its tougher stance earlier this year.
