PPTV is a iPad video applications that mainly covers film, TV, animation, variety, sports, information, games and other video categories, covering hundreds of thousands of video content available to Internet users determined to comprehensive, high-definition, smooth video content.

PPTV website provides a downloadable client that let you watch on your desktop too (Mac & Window) or watch using the browser.

Pros

  1. Thousands of videos!! OMG
  2. User friendly interface, at least for those who can read Chinese!
  3. Update: There’s DOWNLOAD option for you to download & watch the video offline or more smoothly! :D

Cons

  1. During Peak hours some videos will load slowly, need to pause and wait like 5 minutes before the buffer is enough to load smoothly
  2. Chinese navigation hence not easily usable by English speaking people
  3. Do not have a way to sort the videos according to ratings, date of release and date of appearance in theaters
  4. Just found out that certain countries can’t even use the application, New Zealand is one of them if any one of you cannot open the app comment below!

LETV provides a free online video viewing software. Watch the first TV drama based on the music library content, user experience and so we did a full upgrade, Covering film, TV, animation, entertainment, TV and other popular video; video playback is clear and smooth, fresh and elegant interface, simple operation, to give the user the ultimate video experience

    Hi! I can’t seem to load PPTV movies on my ipad. It says loading but it never gets to the movie. I use it using my home network. Can anyone help?

    • Anonymous

      I think certain time of the day is peak hour for PPTV hence it take longer then usual to load. However it can be downloaded & watch later but you need to register an free account. 下载 = download

    Is it possible to watch hong kong movies in Cantonese rather than in mandarin?

    • Anonymous

      Most are Chinese but it’s based on luck if they have Cantonese dubbed version or not

  • TME

    Can you watch English movies on this app in English or is everything in Mandarin like PPTV?

    • Anonymous

      Some movies are dubbed but most are in English with Chinese subtitles

    Why I cannot open the PPTV, stating that my connection problem, but I was able to open LETV.and my internet connect is OK, unlimited hours.

  • Cherrie

    Do you know how can i transfer the drama i downloaded on this iPad to another iPad?

  • Sim

    Initially was able to download most of the new series but now only the older ones. Am from Malaysia.

  • Anna Shaikh

    How do we download movies from pptv?

  • Dan

    I can’t watch some of the newer and better movies on pptv, but many are ok to watch, haven’t figured out why. When you select a movie or tv it gives you details about the movie, from there you usually tap play but it’s not highlighted and tapping or clicking won’t play the movie. Soooooooo frustrating!!!!
