Chongqing Satellite TV has stopped commercial advertisements and will use the airtime to broadcast promotional films and public service announcements, Chongqing Evening News reported on Wednesday.
The new programs will cover themes of books, role models from all fields in Chongqing, and a revolution song singing competition.
In order to provide the audience with a good viewing experience, the public services advertisements and the city's promotional films would not be inserted into ongoing programs, but scheduled at break times between two programs, said the official.
