PPLive programs are targeted to Chinese audiences. A majority of them are categorized as movie, music, TV series or live TV streaming. Also available are some specialties covering sports, news, game shows, etc. Most available programs are in Mandarin, Cantonese or Korean. There is also an increasing number of programs in English, such as Hollywood blockbuster movies and popular American TV shows. All these English-speaking shows are hard-coded with Chinese subtitles.


The PPLive program is installable on Asian and English language versions of Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

By default, you watch the movie right in the browser but for live sports streaming it uses Windows Media Player and RealPlayer. The media player that is opened depends on the type of stream.
