Due to the strict restrictions on TV and limited space for embedded commercials, advertisers can only come to branded drama series and entertainment programs. However, online distribution of content is a perfect channel in China where over 500m Chinese, typically the under 30s, watch online videos. For example, microfilms are popping up all over China and becoming one of the most popular types of branded entertainment.
