Hi! From: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-live-events/plan-for-teams-live-events#who-can... China: Event team members and attendees will not be able to use Teams live events because Azure CDN is not accessible in China. A workaround is to use a company VPN connection, which gets the client connected to CDN via the customer's corporate network. Hope that answers your questions! Adam
