As all we know, PPStream from China has started to restricted users out of China to access their server to watch HongKong Series Drama, the reason behind mostly because of the copyright issue. Anyway, Ii have posted few entries to share how can you watch HongKong Series in PPStream (even with restriction) Or use alternative way to watch Hong Kong drama. Here you go another way [Confirm Working] to watch HK drama in PPS without limitation of region. It works in Malaysia. Share and leave your comments if you are from other region. Update: In the previous entry on how to hack and watch TVB drama in PPStream in windows 7 base, here you go any post for Windows XP users since many of you leave messages asking how to run it on XP version. Proceed to instruction after the break.

Steps By Steps For Windows 7

6. Right Click on both of your files and change it to Read-Only.

    Thanks a lot for this great discovery. Now no restriction or blocking anymore for the HK series but I found that it can't play smoothly & always lag. Though it looks like streaming 100% before the series start, but it will hang / lag 2 or 3 minutes viewing and it keep on streaming from the beginning. Hope you can help! Thanks in advance.

    • Jason Kit

      i'm streaming fine. It could be your line problem, what service you are using? I suggest to upgrade your internet speed plan ^^ or use spyware software to scan your PC.

  • Kelvin

    Im using xp. Do I need to do anything to psnetwork.ini? i.e. do I need to make psnetwork.ini as Read-only too?? Pls advise. Thx.

    • Jason Kit

      yes, after edit then revise it back to read only,

      • Kelvin

        Ah! I also need to edit psnetwork.ini, just like Windows 7? I thought for XP we only need to edit ppsarea.ini, as per the instruction above, no? Pls advise. Thx.

        • Jason Kit

          ops.. overlooked.. You should able to see if you follow the instruction.

  • Kelvin

    Yeah it’s working with only editing the ppsarea.ini file :) thx!!

    Another question: in editing the ppsarea.ini file, the ip=3526115369, or shld It be only ip=352611, as per instruction above? I use 352611 only and it’s working 😉 so just wanna make sure :) pls advise. Thx!!

    • Jason Kit

      That is the ip add, you can use the short form iP but i encourage to use full ip.

  • ted

    I have tried your method and i can see the TVB titles loaded. However i can't seem to play it.
    Could it be i am using the latest pps just downloaded last week?

  • stanley

    I have managed to make the changes as listed …however, my windows xp can't display chinese char in the PPStream player. So I can't do a search on the drama I wanted to see even though the left panel can display chinese char. For example, I wanted to watch 秋香怒点唐伯虎, how to search for it if the search field can't accept chinese char? I managed to find the web site that have link to the show but when I click on it, it will try to play the show on a web site embedded with a web based PPStream but can't play showing this message : You are currently viewing the video temporarily not play. How do you get the link to play on my local PPStream player that referred to the revised ppsarea.ini?

    • Jason Kit

      you cannot see chinese character because of your language setting. Change system locale language to chinese PRC and restart. Good luck..

  • ming

    i cant find ppsarea.ini no matter what… Gahhh!!!

  • Kesin

    I tried your method and it was successful but after i shut down and open again.. I cannot even play any show ?

  • Kesin

    And i am from Singapore.

    • Jason Kit
