Twitch blocked in China

Recently, the streaming service Twitch markedly gained in popularity in China. In many respects due to the fact that at the last Asian Games were presented and cybersport disciplines, which the official television channels decided not to broadcast. As a result, in some rankings, Twitch became the third most popular download application in the local AppStore, while earlier it was on the 300th line.

But now, Chinese users are reporting that the application site can no longer be installed. He was blocked in the country and removed from the Chinese application store Apple. This information was confirmed in the administration of the Twitch service.

These censorship steps are in line with the policy of the Chinese government, which tries to prevent large media sites from entering its own market. And if they start typing in popularity, then they are very quickly closed. For example, Twitter, Facebook and Google are banned in China.
