China’s broadcasting regulator has banned the BBC World Service from airing there, according to a report in Chinese state media.
The news follows a move by Britain’s communications regulator last week to strip the state-run China global television network of its broadcast license in the U.K.

According to the state news agency Xinhua, China’s National Radio and Television Administration said BBC World News “was found to have seriously violated regulations on radio and television management and on overseas satellite television channel management in its China-related reports which went against the requirements that news reporting must be true and impartial, and undermined China’s national interests and ethnic solidarity.”

Xinhua quoted a statement from the regulator: “As the channel fails to meet the requirements to broadcast in China as an overseas channel, BBC World News is not allowed to continue its service within Chinese territory. The NRTA will not accept the channel’s broadcast application for the new year.”

U.K. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab called the move “unacceptable.”

“China’s decision to ban BBC World News in mainland China is an unacceptable curtailing of media freedom,” Raab tweeted. “China has some of the most severe restrictions on media & internet freedoms across the globe, & this latest step will only damage China’s reputation in the eyes of the world.”

CGTN, the Chinese global television network, opened its European production center in London two years ago. But last week, Ofcom, the British regulator, announced it was pulling the network’s license because China’s Communist Party oversees the network’s editorial policy. British law forbids political bodies from controlling license holders.

Experts had expected retaliation by the Chinese government against BBC reporters in China, even though the BBC is editorially independent of the British government.

The Chinese government has criticized and denied BBC reports that women were subject to rape and torture in internment camps for Uighurs and other Muslims in Xinjiang.

The BBC said it was disappointed with the decision by Chinese authorities.

“The BBC is the world’s most trusted international news broadcaster and reports on stories from around the world fairly, impartially and without fear or favour,” it said in a statement.

The Chinese government already censors some BBC content and the broadcaster’s TV audience in the country is tiny. The BBC is not allowed to broadcast directly into Chinese homes and is largely available via satellite in international hotels and the homes of some foreigners and more globally minded Chinese.

NPR’s Frank Langfitt contributed to this report from London.

I can't say that this is something good. I think the prices for some Chinese products will rise. I always try to be informed about the political situation in our country so this is why I read the news every day. I use kisspr news for this purpose. IT is a very good site for people that are almost every day busy. I like that near every article there is written how much time it will take to read the article, so you can manage your time. Also, there are articles from almost all domains, so there are a lot of interesting things to read not depending on what you like.
