You know what they say, China doesn’t have digital products, instead, it’s all digital freebies because of the lack of legal accountability for intellectual property. A recently released Hollywood blockbuster movie will be pouring into the piracy market at less than $1 per DVD copy. And online? You literally have unlimited access to millions of movies via a variety of channels: you can either download them via P2P downloading network or watch them online.
While reasonably you may think them in understandably inferior video qualities – they are, quite a percentage of them – but as far as I’ve seen them, the quality of the majority of them is comparable to traditional DVD, if not HD.
PPS is currently the largest P2P video streaming network in China. They’ve got a few English web pages online to for potential venture capitalists, but the program itself is completely targeted at the Chinese market.
After installation, the program will need a brief contact to the central server to get the latest playing list of TV channels and programs – daily updated movies (English, Chinese, Japanese and Korean) and continued cycles of operas (love, comedy, CSI, cartoon and so forth). There’s one thing that may hinder anyone not speaking Chinese from using it, that is, the titles are all in Chinese.
