How much more can they ban in China?

지난달


South Park is banned in China because of the latest episode, no surprise at all.

https://twitter.com/SouthPark

It's not news any more that recent couple of years China has extended restrictions on many foreign content on TV and online.

I haven't lived in China for years, but when I lived there, since YouTube was blocked, I sometimes went to buy dvds to watch shows because it's cheap and less hassle than to download. Dvd shop sounds so old fashioned i know lol but for a place internet sucks, it's the best! I wonder how it is there now. It was actually also possible to watch TV shows on popular sites such as bilibili, or you can download on torrent as well. I don't know how easy it is to download stuff nowadays in China.

I just went on bilibili to take a look, such as:


Wow, seems like they haven't censored everything yet, cool, I'm so proud of them.

Still seems to be able to find some TV shows and movies. But in 2014 or 2016 they did a major censorship on TV shows and delisted a lot of them on major video sites there. As far as I know, there's always verification before anything gotta posted on those video sites in China.

Talking about South Park, I liked their last episode, haha, they are telling all truth.

Recently because of HK protest, when I browsed around, I feel bad seeing a lot of Chiniese celebrities and models posting on social media about supporting China, how much they love China, do they really love this country or they just love China communist money?

It was not surprising they ban South Park only now actually.

Lately I heard in some hotels in China, if you show you have a foreign passport, you may be able to get normal "uncensored" internet. (I meant uncensored by China at least)

I have mixed feeling for it, good is that probably there's always working VPN or normal internet available, which is easy to understand, as long as they want to do business with other countries, they will need normal internet somewhere right?

Then again, I feel sad because it probably means there's no way to turn this around, they can sensor everything, create a totally China localised censored internet (we are actually almost there now) for the Chinese living there. I always feel restriction on others' access to information and on their freedom of speech is the worst thing ever you can do.

現時香港問題,全民都知怎樣斥局,但唯一是香港政府不願意面對。 唉~

我其实认为任何(大部分)政府存在的本质就是不做事掠夺人民,我从来不指望任何政府真的做事。
香港人民加油吧,加油买比特币。

China will ban everything that goes counter to their narrative.
They have to keep their one (and only) story going.

It is the reason Hong Kong must be pulled under their yoke.

It will be the destruction of Center Country.

(and internet blockages are as useful as sieves for holding water)

Yea, born and raised there, I’m aware of what is going on.

Viacom seems to have pulled the video.

copyright problem i guess, thanks edited

When I'm in China I have difficulty using really anything since all the big sites are blocked. Steemit wasn't though. 😃

Now steemit also, together with many other steem apis, since last winter, sadly. I really don’t go back any more even just to visit.

well that is just terrible to hear... I was actually surprised and impressed when i was (just in the airport) there last year that Steemit was one of the only things i could actually access.

I will never live there and I hope that the rest of the world doesn't follow their model. awful

I hope no one follows their model too. I think last years they blocked steem reddit and some other sites too.

This is hear say... If entertainment professionals in HK don't demonstrate support for CCP they get "little shoe" treatment (bans/hurdles?) in China.

·

sad everytime I saw this, probably they will lose the huge china market if they don’t or if they demonstrate support of HK independence... CCP and the whole nationalism thing in China makes me sad.

First thing I do when booting up the computer is to turn on the VPN. Even that has been a real headache since June, but my cell phone has worked pretty seamlessly.
