After a long day at work there often is no better way to unwind than curling up on the couch and binge watching your favorite TV series or movies… that is, if you can access a site that allows you to do so.
For many of us living in Beijing the sites that we are accustomed to using back home are blocked or restricted to certain regions. Never fear; wherever there is a China Challenge, there is a China Solution.
Below are three websites we use to stream shows when Netflix is down. The websites are listed in order of preferred user experience. Please note: we use these sites with our VPN on for best performance.
1. Go Movies
Web Address: https://gostream.is/
Why We Like It: Simple layout, easy to navigate, minimal popups, good selection, good quality,
Currently Streaming: Greenleaf
Web Address: https://fmovies.se/ or https://fmovies.is/
