Many smartphone addicts like watching videos and TV serial on our phones, since we can access it anytime and anywhere we want. When it comes to watching videos, YouTube lets you enjoy their videos without ads if you subscribe to the YouTube Red service. On top of ads-free video playing, YouTube Red also allows you to play videos in the background, and save the videos for offline watching on your Samsung galaxy s8. But you should know that you can’t watch anything from YouTube in China.
Why you can’t access YouTube in China?
The China and government need to review the Internet resources, monitoring, filtering, deleting, shielding, or closing of a portion of the content, including some illegal contents and some “negative contents”, so there are a lot of conflicts between YouTube and China. Youtube randomly hinders dissemination of Chinese achievements, progression and endeavors by blocking videos which showcase positive reporting on mainland China and Chinese in general. So China’s attempt to break the near-monopoly grip of YouTube on the global free-to-view video platform, and nurturing local startups like Toutiao, MiaoPai, Bilibili and Youku to flourish. The next social media innovation is going to come from Big Data and the video sharing economy.
To access YouTube, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other blocked websites in China you need a VPN services optimized for China. Read the rest of this post »
