Download PPLive and Watch Live Sports, Movies and TV Shows
PPLive is another great program developed in China and used by people from all over the world to watch TV on the internet.
It uses peer to peer (p2p) technology to stream channels to views. Its similar to downloading torrents, anyone watching the stream also contributes some of their upload bandwidth so the next person can watch, and so on – file sharing but with videos.
Once you have the program install, on your first load, Windows will ask if you want to allow PPLive to open some port in your firewall, say yes. Opening the ports means you can get the best, smoothest video streams.
PPLive will then automatically update its channel list displays on the right of the program. The channels are sorted into different categories like sports, entertainment, movies etc. If your PPLive is in Chinese, you have either download the latest version, so you need to download an older version (linked below), or you have let your older version update itself.
One of the best feature of PPLive is it lets you preview channels by hovering your mouse pointer over any channel name displaying a thumbnail of what on now. This is great if you cant read Chinese, as it saves you from having to wait for a channel to buffer just to see what’s on.
Download PPLive, just click the download button.
