Watching PPS out of China (China Proxy Servers)

China has a lot of streaming media (video, audios, MP3s) available but they are starting to attempt to play nicely with copyright rules and limit access to local IPs. This bars access for users not within China to popular programs such as PPS or China MP3 websites.

So for example PPS users, if you are keen to watch your favourite Hong Kong or Taiwan TV drama, you may realise that now PPS does an IP check prior to streaming the requested media. There’s a simple workaround which requires you to route your traffic through a China Proxy server and thus indicate that you have a China IP address.
Spoofing a China IP address would work on all your devices, from computers, to Android devices, You can pay for a VPN option, for a more secure and stable connection. BolehVPN has a Hong Kong server VPN option. Alternatively, a cheaper way (FREE) would be to connect through a China Proxy.
