Videoink: Machinima Takes China with Sohu Partnership

YouTube, Instagram and Twitter are blocked in China, and Netflix has been thwarted in its efforts to launch in country. But gaming-centric multi-platform production company Machinima is coming to the Middle Kingdom via a licensing agreement with Beijing-based new media company Sohu, announced today.

The deal will bring Machinima content – including original programming such as “Street Fighter: Resurrection,” the esports reality show “Training Camp,” “The Bacca Chronicles” and the upcoming “Transformers: The Combiner Wars” (a Go90 exclusive in the U.S.) — to Sohu’s Online Video PGC (Professionally-generated Content) Platform.

The content will available via Machinima-branded AVOD portals on and Sohu apps.
