Commission plans to prepare OTT rules by JulyBy Shelley Shan / Staff reporterThe National Communications Commission (NCC) aims to present draft regulations governing over-the-top (OTT) media providers before the end of July, NCC Chairman Chen Yaw-shyang (陳耀祥) said yesterday. Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Hung Mong-kai (洪孟楷) asked Chen about the commission’s progress on proposed regulations for OTT media, including Netflix, iQiyi and Line TV. Hong asked why OTT content from China is a national security issue, when TV stations are allowed to broadcast Chinese TV series. However, such an obligation is not imposed on streaming media, he said. While big online streaming media, such as iQiyi, would definitely be regulated, the commission has yet to determine how they would be managed, Chen said.
