I wonder how many non-Chinese speaking sports fans around the world are watching Chinese TV broadcasts of sporting events (especially soccer) online? One way to watch soccer on the Internet:
Some smart Chinese people have worked out how to use P2P to stream a
live TV signal – and the most watched shows are the Chinese coverage of
live Premiership games. It’s regularly mentioned in most football
mailing lists or forums and there are a few websites promoting it. (link)
PPStream is one application for downloading Chinese TV feeds or watching live on your screen. Learn how to do it here.
A brief Google search for live online sports feeds reveals a bunch of Chinese TV station websites (CCTV-5, Shanghai Media Group’s gsports, Guangdong TV). Would love to know more about how these work, if anyone you know uses them.
