It looks a bit too neat to be satellite jamming. Firstly it's a tidy cut to black rather with no picture disturbance. Secondly it cuts away before the story even starts, so unless they have access the running order they wouldn't know the story was coming up. So they're obviously watching it on a delay so they can block it before anything appears at all
So they're censoring it after it comes off the satellite but before it's sent out to the public on cable or other distribution system.
Secondly you can't jam a satellite signal on the downlink, you can only jam the uplink by squirting a signal at the satellite from the ground (As happens)
And of course you can't just jam one service, it's the whole transponder or nothing.
I don't know what satellite they use for World News in China but if they were jamming the satellite the other broadcasters on their transponder wouldn't be very keen
World News Asia Pacific is on these satellites:
Notice that on Intelsat 19 it appears 3 times, albeit all encrypted
