China’s online giants rock demand

HBO’s sci-fi series Westworld beat epic Chinese palace drama Ruyi’s Royal Love In The Palace by almost 14 million Demand Expressions on our overall TV shows chart for China the week ending 19th of September. But it’s also very clear evidence that China’s digital platforms are rocking premium originals. Ruyi’s Royal Love In The Palace, originally made for online platform operator Tencent, but aired widely across all platforms, was one of three Asian drama’s on the week’s top 10 overall list. Other Asian titles included Japanese manga title Attack on Titan came in fourth and financial drama, Another Era, a co-produced between mainland streaming platform iQiyi and Hong Kong broadcaster Television Broadcasts Ltd (TVB), placed seventh.
