Chinese Historical Dramas: better waiting they are already aired before getting the license?

Lately, life is very hard for Chinese Historical fans. Yan Shi Fan/Legend of Youth/Forwarded Forever (yes, it changed name three times during nearly a year of limbo) seems to be postponed again. A thing of beauty like Royal Nirvana stopped to be broadcasted after few, wonderful episodes with no “reasonable reason.” Now I’m waiting with fear Joy of Life. At the moment, it looks like safer don’t buy in advance any Chinese Historical Drama.
