Twitch later confirmed this was owing to the company’s streaming service being banned in China, though no further explanation as to why was offered.
The app recently flew up the popular downloads rankings in the country – all the way to third place – thanks to its coverage of the Asian Games, with this year’s esports tournament held in Jakarta, Indonesia, and seeing Chinese entrants take home a couple of gold medals. – MCVUK
