I still remember the 2018 crackdown. My wife and I used to rely on certain Chinese content streaming sites to watch Hollywood movies.
But in China, piracy is there to stay. Even though I’m used to Netflix, Spotify, Amazon Prime, etc., I still can find links to almost any sort of digital content through Baidu search.
When it comes to music streaming, I love NetEase and Xiami’s subscription model. Unlike Spotify, you can stream any international content without ads on NetEase Music and Xiami. You only have to pay for streaming/downloads in WAV/FLAC format.
