We've been reading reports that Chinese online-TV streaming services have been giving people 502 server error codes. Thanks to information published by Chiphell, we've now found partially what the issue is.




According to local reports, many TV websites were abruptly stopped from servicing their customers on Friday the 21st of November, local time. This issue carried out throughout the whole day, with access finally being restored later in the night.


On October the 28th, reports came to light that due to copyright pressure, many websites will completely remove all download links to copyright-free resources by the end of November. Claiming that by early November, these websites will further be blacklisted by the American Film Institute.
