"Google’s AlphaGo is playing the world Go champ in China, but nobody can watch it there"

CNBC:

Chinese state media outlets were also restricted by authorities from live broadcasting the game, and issued coverage guidelines ahead of the match, according to sources familiar with the matter, who declined to be identified because they weren't authorized to speak in an official capacity.

Local media outlets also pulled their live feeds, and reports of the game dropped mention of Google's involvement. The company declined to comment.
