Watch International TV in China

I am listening and watching BBC World right now while I am typing this . Thanks to some research done by Fons of the China Herald into the peer-to-peer media streaming world.

Besides that it’s interesting to see P2P used for live tv streams I am actually pretty happy with the fact I can watch some real news instead of CCTV-9.

I know, I know, it probably isn’t the most Intellectual Property friendly software.

Then again , my excuse is that I would love to pay for it, the Chinese cable company just doens’t offer it.

Fons tested two services and based on his experiences I am using Sopcast which seems to be more crash friendly. It works like a charm.
