It is a common practice for TV stations to repeat its programme, especially to those channels which has limited supply of chinese films, you could use the description of "broadcast till rotten".

According to survey reports from Rainmaker, the locals loves Andy Lau and Stephen Chow's God of Gamblers II as it was broadcast a total of 90 times last year, average of 4 times per day. This year's choice is Chow Yun Fatt and Andy Lau's God of Gamblers which will be broadcast once every 3 days.

The rate of repeating by several channels are scary as they all quote the reason that they wanted to fulfill the requirement of different audience viewing at different times as every broadcast will have a high viewership with the audience enjoying watching it again. For some, they could even close their eyes and narrate the scenes and dialogues that will happen next in the movie.

Frankly speaking, there is no right or wrong in the copyright of the films, which includes the number of times that it will be broadcast, thus it was the main reason for the repeated broadcasting. It was forcast that Stephen Chow's Shaolin Soccer will be the next victim as next year, it'll be open for non-exclusive broadcasting.
