(Undated) — China is blocking Amazon’s popular video game streaming service Twitch. Chinese consumers say they have not been able to use Twitch since Thursday. It was becoming very popular in China especially after official Chinese media decided to not broadcast the Asian Games, a competitive video game competition. The Chinese government has a history of wanting strict controls over any foreign company that provides media to its citizens. Amazon bought Twitch for about one-billion-dollars in 2014. That service joins others that have been blocked in China, including Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
