Why Does the Issue Happen?

Telegram users often face the issue where they are displayed with the error message of This channel cannot be displayed on Telegram when they try to get into a channel that is not available for you to enter. It can be caused due to several reasons:

1. You’re Banned from the Channel:

Telegram follows certain strict policies regarding every kind of activity on it. If a user engages in any kind of misbehavior with a channel, the admin may ban you from being a member of it or from accessing it. You will not be able to enter the channel further after they ban or restrict you from entering. Therefore you’ll be displayed with the error message of This channel cannot be displayed every time you try to get into the Telegram channel.

2. Your Region is Blocked:

Another possible cause of why you’re not able to get into a Telegram channel and is displayed with the error message is that your region might be blocked for the channel. If you’re from somewhere where the channel isn’t available to be accessed by the public of that region, you’ll not be able to enter into the channel.

Telegram has a certain kind of privacy when it comes to maintaining channels and if a channel is unavailable in your area or region you won’t be able to get into it or be a member of the channel.

Different channels are blocked from different areas and if you’re from a region where a channel is blocked and isn’t available to use, you can’t get into it and you’ll be displayed with the error line.

3. Sensitive Content:

Telegram follows strict rules and policies when it comes to posting. If a channel in Telegram violates its guidelines by posting sensitive content, it gets banned and can’t be accessed anymore. Whenever anyone tries to get into the channel after it is banned or blocked by Telegram they get the error message: This channel cannot be displayed.

Sensitive content

If Telegram finds that a channel is violating any rules or policy by posting spam or inappropriate content, the channel is immediately blocked by Telegram and no members of that channel can get into there again.

Even in the case when the channel posts content that is shared illegally and is violating the copyright policy, it immediately gets blocked by Telegram. Posting any kind of content that promotes violence, hatred or other sensitive topics that aren’t allowed to be posted on Telegram leads to the banning of the channel by Telegram itself.
