BEIJING, March 21 (Xinhua) -- China's TV and radio integrated broadcasters shall launch special channels and frequencies, time slots, sections, and modes for programs targeting minors as an audience, says a draft law on TV and radio.

The law urges mechanisms, such as the commissioner for the protection of minors and the evaluation committee for programs targeting minors, to ensure the content is appropriate for children and minors' interests are better protected.

The audience should be warned when a program may contain content unsuitable for minors and make a rational arrangement on the program release time and layout, the draft law states.

Public opinion is being invited until April 16, 2021, for the draft law, which is available on the website of the National Radio and Television Administration.

The draft law is yet to be tabled before lawmakers for deliberation, which is part of the legislation procedure. Enditem
