According to the South China Morning Post, China announced that the streaming services of live operators are forbidden to allow anyone under 16 to register for online streaming.
The move is just one of several new restrictions on digital entertainment aimed at children, part of a series of new guidelines on childhood development.
The State Council said online services, from games to social networks, should limit children’s online time and said it would do more in rating and reviewing content in games and protecting some children’s privacy and personal data.
The council added that it is working on an electronic identification system to supervise the playing time of minors in video games.
However, at the end of August, it was announced that the children could only play three hours a week, one hour on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
