This chapter examines the development of television systems and categories of programming in mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. In these countries, television viewing has established an important connection to people's lives. Local production has responded accordingly with the consolidation in recent years of local industries and the implementation of regulatory policies to protect and nurture local content. Despite such new growth areas in Asia, the television-production environment remains in a state of flux, echoing global developments in media convergence and multi-channelling. The chapter explores discourses of modernity and globalization as they impact upon the kinds of content that is deemed fit to broadcast in China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan—whether for political purposes, or, in more recent times, for commercial considerations.

Keywords:   television systems, China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, television production, modernity, globalization
