OTT Entertainment said that according to a related order issued by the Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs, the company has stopped selling the membership of Iqiyi's services in Taiwan from September 3 and will give up its brand agent service. At the additional request of Taiwan's National Communications Commission, the agency will also stop providing customer service to Iqiyi users on the island starting October 15.
