China's media oversight body - the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television - on Thursday posted a notice accusing the three companies of operating without a license and disseminating content that is negatively impacting society.
Yesterday, the government reportedly told three websites - Sina Weibo, iFeng, and ACFUN - to stop streaming video and audio content that apparently were "not in line with national audiovisual regulations and propagating negative speech", according to the Financial Times.
In February, Pear Video, an online platform that produces short videos, was ordered to make changes after producing "exclusive" political news content without a license to publish original content online, make broadcasts and circulate videos.

When contacted Wednesday, a team spokesman said OU is aware of the new charge and has not modified Sunderland's status. Once outside, cameras show Sunderland placing the red bag in the trunk of a vehicle parked outside Headington Hall.
It added that authorities have been ordered to shut down the offending audio-visual services "so as to create a cleaner cyberspace". "The regulation will not shut down all their video content, but only to better regulate the Internet and further promote the country's reform". Internet companies are required to enforce censorship by removing postings about politically sensitive topics.
Weibo, a Twitter-like social network, had 340 million monthly active users at the end of this March - surpassing Twitter itself during the same period.
