China to get Disney films through YOU on Demand


SHANGHAI (AP) -- Beauty and the Beast is heading to China. YOU On Demand, a major distributor of pay-per-view content in China, says it has signed an agreement with Disney Media Distribution to distribute films in China.

YOU said Thursday that many Disney films would be available through its pay-per-view and subscription video services offered through an arrangement with the state-run CCTV's Channel 6.

China has strictly limited the number and types of foreign films imported into its market, but last week during a state visit by Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping, China and the U.S. reached an agreement to open the Chinese market wider to American films.

Still, YOU says the films its channels will carry will be those that are "officially approved."
