Does anyone have a recommendation on best method for streaming Chinese language television outside of China? I'd like to watch a bit for comprehension practice.

I asked a Chinese friend the same thing. You might want to check this out...

Let me know what you think...

The SBS Australia daily news in Chinese (Google it) is very clearly spoken and it has enormous English subtitles.  It is very good for listening practice and the stories are not boring like most Chinese TV.

Such a well-kept secret even an Australian resident like me with great interest in language and who watches SBS everyday didn't know about it... Thanks bodawei for the tip!

In addition, Youku and Tudou both have iPhone apps, so you can watch them on the go.

Thanks for the apps tip. I don't have an iPhone but I'm hoping for an iPad very soon.
