I will be in China for a short trip in China and while I likely won't even have the time at night(being dead tired an all) I was wondering if I am able to view streams as I do here in the US. Or if things a limited or what not. Tried doing a few searches and didn't see an answer, so sorry if this has already been answered.

My understanding is that your location will always determine your availability - if I visited the UK, I'd get whatever shows are available in the UK, so while you're in China, you'll get the shows available in China. Not the best answer, sorry..

Eh better than no answer at all. Doesn't seem to be a listing of availability of shows be region it seems but oh well, worst case, I can have a backlog of shows to watch for two weeks lol.

Assuming CR isn't blocked by the "Great Firewall of China", you would likely only have access to shows that were "worldwide except Japan".

I can't recall seeing any licensing announcements that specifically mentioned China, but there have been a number that specifically excepted Asia or southeast Asia.
