Top 7 Websites to Watch Chinese Movies Online for Free

There will be some difficulties for foreigners to search for free Chinese movies on the Internet, as Chinese is widely considered a “difficult” language to learn. That’s the reason why I create this post which lists the seven popular movie websites which allow movie lovers to Chinese films for free:

Please note that most movie sites are only available with IP from China. If you live outside of mainland China,when you watch these movies it will show “Sorry, this video is not available in your region due to copyright limitations” or “很抱歉,由于版权原因暂无法播放” in Chinese language.  The best way to resolve this problem is to use a VPN service with a server in China. I recommend you use PureVPN, it can unblock all Chinese video sites and allow you to watch all Chinese movies smoothly on computer and mobile devices including Android and iOS and the speed is very good. The monthly fee is only $4.16 for one year package. And besides it offers a 7 day money back guarantee, so you can try out the service and get refund if you do If you’re not delighted with it. Click Here to register.

1.  Iqiyi Movie is owned by Baidu, the largest Chinese search engine company. offers various full-length and copyrighted contents including movies, TV shows, animation, documentaries, musics…etc. The site only allows China IP to access, if you live outside of China you must use VPN (I recommend PureVPN, it has the best speed.)to unlock the site.

2.  M1905 is the official movie site of China’s national CCTV Movie Channel. The site provides columns like movies, videos, movie rankings, movie stars, movie blog…etc. It boasts 1,400 genuine HD movies with 3 extra movies added each day. M1905 is so amazing, it is free of copyright restrictions, and people can watch all its movies instantly anywhere in the world for free.

3.  Sohu Movie

sohu moviesSohu Movie is one of China’s most popular streaming movie websites. The site provides thousands of movies and TV series for free. Even some of latest American movies and TV shows are available legally. But all those movies are only available for Mainland China. Users outside of mainland China need to use VPN to unlock the site.

4. Youku Movie Everyone knows Youku in China, a similar video site like YouTube. Its movie channel hosts a large number of both Chinese and foreign movies, including many top blockbusters. However all Youku movies are only available with IP from China due to copyright restrictions. If you want to watch movies on Youku outside China, you need to unblock Youku with VPN.

5.  Xunlei Kankan Movie Xunlei Kankan is another popul

      There is nothing to watch. It just asks you to watch ads and download some unnecessary software, if not spyware, without knowing it.

    Hi, is there any way of watching these movies with English subtitles? Thanks

  6. qwerty says:

    So…no english subtitles…and not viewable anywhere but on the mainland. Why did you make this post? Oh, right, for the same reason you made the “Top 10 Chinese breasts” post- web traffic and ads…friggin’ hack.

    • Peter says:

      As mentioned at the top of my post, you need use VPN service to watch these movies. Some movies have English subtitles, some don’t. You can check this movie site, it does not have any district restriction.

      • qwerty says:

        …it also has no English language interface, making it utterly useless for “foreigners to find and watch free Chinese movies on internet” with or without subtitles, the alleged reason for this post’s existence. Original assessment stands.

          Some of us can speak and read Chinese, you know…do not let your own limits be the standard for the rest of the world

    I just love streaming movies on my laptop, especially on YouTube and other websites. But these websites don’t provide me with a downloading option. I was searching for movie downloading options for free, I came across your article. I have already started downloading movies from movieplus. Thank you so much for the aid.
