In Europe we have seen an incredible increase in video streaming offers to which we can subscribe. From being able to have one, we’ve hit what’s called subscription fatigue. We can’t, or won’t, pay for all platforms. However, we have seen that there are different proposals, like IQiyi, known as Chinese Netflix.
What is IQiyi
This popular video streaming service arrived in Europe several months ago, but something has gone unnoticed. This is normal, it is a platform with unlined content, that is to say with audio only in Chinese
However, the series and films available in Europe are all subtitled in our language, so fans watching content on VoSe (original version with Spanish subtitles) will have no problem.
A free streaming service
The most striking thing about IQiyi is that despite the payment plans Standard and another call premium), allows you to enjoy much of its content for free.
Of course, we’ll have to see some ads and the maximum resolution is limited to 720p. This is not the case in the paid versions, which even allow access to an account with two or four profiles at the same time, in the same way we do on platforms like Netflix.
A complementary service and not for everyone
Obviously, this type of cinema, series and films does not claim to be an alternative in Europe not only to Netflix or HBO, but even to Filmin. Of course, lovers of oriental culture or Chinese students will have in this application a significant form of free entertainment.
IQiyi can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store, it allows us to play the content without registration and even allows us to download the chapters of the series to the mobile phone to watch them offline.
