Exclusive: ESC 2013 Rebroadcasting due in China

27 Sep

Accounts of sina weibo (The alternative of Twitter in China) of some internal figures in the radio-television field of China told @escfans_china that the Music Channel of Chinese Central Television (CCTV-MUSIC or CCTV-15) will rebroadcast Eurovision 2013 on 5th and 6th of October at 2200 hours Beijing Time (GMT+8).

Chinese people will enjoy annual National Day holiday from 1 to 7 of October, and moreover, night hours after 20:00 are considered as “Golden Hours” with higher rate of Chinese viewers. After this broadcast, and with the rumour that Emmelie de Forest, ESC 2013 winner, may travel to China sometime in the next six months, we expect a big boost of ESC 2013 popularity here in China.

However, it remains to be seen whether sensitive moments of ESC 2013 performance, for example, Finnish representative Krista Siegfrids’ lesbian-style kiss, will be censored or not, and in which way if it will be.
