Sat Failure Blocks Banned Programs

Malfunction of a Japanese satellite means that, for now, Taiwanese are unable to view programs banned by their government.

Through Superbird A, Japanese satellite channel operator OWT was set to broadcast five hours of docus and dramas produced by Beijing-based China Central Television.

An upcoming deregulation of some powerful antennae by the Taipei government would have inadvertently allowed Taiwanese to receive the satellite’s signal.

The programs, designed for expatriate Chinese based in the U.S. and Europe, are edited from newscast and news material produced China’s 400 regional tv stations.
