This book aims to identify and examine how various factors interact to affect the development of TV within the Chinese social system, looking at three distinct markets - China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. As with the other books in this series, "TV in Greater China" examines the financing, production and distribution processes in this specific market. The author studies programming policy and audience preferences in the three Chinese television systems, and investigates the use of imported programmes to determine the emergence of common cultural icons and television culture among the three Chinese societies. This television culture is portrayed as an integral part of a larger culture involving popular music, movies and fiction. The book addresses the growing influences of Japanese and Korean popular culture in Greater China to contextualise the responses of regional market needs in the face of globalisation and increasing democratisation. The book includes a case study on China's ban on foreign satellite TV.
