Tips on how to watch Hong Kong/Mainland Channels, etc

mather 461 41 November 30, 2012 at 01:52 PM
New thread for discussion on watching overseas Asian channels. As big as SD is, I think this can be helpful for some members.

Additional info to come.

To watch Asian related channels and some including TVB:

Edit whether sites/methods are legit or non-legit, if you have the information.

Legit:

5ik.tv [5ik.tv] is another subscription based provider of Taiwan channels, TVB looks to be available but only to Latin America.
HK ATV [hkatv.com]
Dish Jadeworld [dishcantonesetv.com] official package in the US?
GekTV [gektv.com] Legit.
Kylin TV [kylintv.com]
TVB [tvb.com] Free for those in HK, for others, you would have to use a HK VPN. I think TVB uses Octoshape, which is a P2P plug-in, FYI. This is similar to Hulu in terms of service.
TVB through Tai Seng [taiseng.com], I found this out on Crunchyroll. This appears similar to Hulu Plus in terms of service.
TVB USA [tvbusa.com], TVB and Dish website?

Non-legit:

BeTV [ibetv.com]
CoiThienThaiTV [coithienthaitv.com]
Funshion [funshion.com]
V.2345 [2345.com], portal site of ALL China streaming providers(PPTV, LeTV, Funshion, iqiyi, etc) either live channels or on-demand videos
TVPad [tvpad.hk] is a popular choice, works fine for some, not for others (requires at least 3.0Mpbs service and there is always a 10+ sec delay in changing "channels").

Undetermined:

Hanyastar [hanyastar.com]
LeTV [letv.com]
TVU [tvunetworks.com]

Some VPNs, etc. These are needed in cases where one must trick the site because of regional restrictions for viewing.

VPN Traffic [vpntraffic.com]
UnoTelly DNS [unotelly.com], trial service exists.

there are plenty of sites that allow you to stream the HK shows. obviously you are not going to be watching live. but quality is good and no commercials

I believe that TVB now has an ad supported app for both android and iOS
