Top 7 Websites to Watch Chinese Movies Online for Free
Many foreigners may want to know where to watch Chinese movies. The problem is that 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 Chinese movie websites which allow movie lovers to watch full Chinese films online for free.
Today many Chinese movies has English subtitles and if you download the app of the below services, you will be able to download Chinese movies on your smartphone.
Please note that most movie websites 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 PandaVPN, 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 $2.49 for one year package. And besides it offers 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.
