China Demands Shutdown of DisneyLife Service
April 26, 2016
The sudden suspension of DisneyLife comes amid a crackdown in China’s digital media space.
DisneyLife may be coming to an untimely end in China.
Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group and Walt Disney Co. announced a multiyear licensing agreement to bring the over-the-top (OTT) service to Chinese subscribers in December.
But China’s media regulators have already demanded that it be shut down, according to the Wall Street Journal.
