Where to Watch
When I first started out in this drama-watching obsession of mine, I couldn’t download everything (or even anything, come to think of it) for tech-related reasons, so I relied on the magnificence of internet streaming sites to help me along.
Here’s a list of the ones I use(d) very often, in no particular order. Hopefully this will save you some time.
General Streaming Sites
- Youtube: I’m sure you’ve heard of this one by now. If not… then, think of it this way – my friend likes to say ‘Youtube has everything and your mother‘. Not terribly refined, but true.
- Tudou: The Chinese Youtube, only more orange. It has a very user-friendly interface, and I’ve never had any streaming troubles.
- Youku: The name’s a pun on Youtube and ‘cool’, and while it is also in wide use, I’ve had so much trouble waiting for it to load that I almost always prefer Tudou. Still a good alternative Chinese site. (They tend to load episodes in their entirety here.)
- Xiaoli’s Emporium: Chinese site with links to virtually any drama and movie (Asian or North American) in csubs, plus loads of other stuff.
- 迅雷看看: Drama/movie archive.
- D-addicts: houses the torrents to newly aired episodes as well as a complete list of subbed dramas and sub torrents.
- AM-Addiction: raw episodes, usually for download at server sites. Also mind-blowingly comprehensive.
Will add more when I bump into more resources!
