YouTube Suspends OPPO India’s Channel During Launch Event Live Stream

In a bizarre incident, OPPO India saw its YouTube channel shut down on Monday during livestreams of its highly anticipated Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 flagship smartphones, OPPO Pad Air tablet and TWS headphones.

YouTube halted the live stream in the middle of the launch event, allegedly for violating its terms of service.

“This account has been terminated for violating YouTube’s Terms of Service,” the notification read.

The smartphone maker had yet to react to the development.

The action was apparently taken after OPPO compared its Reno8 series with Apple’s iPhone.

The company recently made headlines for allegedly evading customs duties worth Rs 4,389 crore, as claimed by the Directorate of Tax Intelligence (DRI).

The smartphone maker said it was taking appropriate action against the DRI show cause notice, including “remedies provided by law.”

OPPO India said it is a responsible company and believes in a prudent corporate governance framework.
