Telegram "This channel is blocked" - what is it and how to bypass the restriction

Telegram has long been among the most popular messengers in Russia and the world. The total number of active users exceeds 500 million people. A convenient system of thematic groups and channels has been implemented. This allows you to receive news, learn about important events or read interesting information from sources you like. There may be a situation when you see a message from Telegram: "This channel is unavailable." We will try to understand in more detail what this means and how to act in such a situation on various operating systems.

Telegram: "This channel is unavailable" - how to get around

Do you need to create a new account in the messenger? To do this, you need to link a mobile phone. There is not always an extra number, especially if mass registration is carried out. In other situations, the main request is anonymity, which cannot be achieved by specifying official contacts. It is recommended to use the services of the "Grizzly Sms" service. Here you can buy a virtual number for registration in Telegram. The cost is from a few cents apiece, depending on the selected country.

What does "This Telegram channel is unavailable" mean on iPhone and Android

There are several possible situations here. Most often, the reason is copyright infringement. Large operating system development companies are making their contribution. Even if the Telegram administration does not block certain channels, the OS can do it. We are talking about devices running iOS and Android. In this case, a Telegram message is issued: "this channel is unavailable because it was used for distribution ...". Despite this, the messenger has left a number of loopholes to prevent such restrictions of its users.
