What are the best HK drama apps?

Hong Kong is less known for its HK dramas but that doesn't mean there aren't any HK drama out there that are worth watching. Thanks to some of the most brilliant filmmakers, showrunners, actors, and singers that fled to Hongkong to establish this country as China's heart of entertainment. Of course, talking about the dramatic roller-coaster of its growth and decline would be incomplete without acknowledging the 52 years (and counting) existence of the Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) company set in Hong Kong. As a result, Hong Kong may not have as many dramas as other Asian countries out there but when they do, showrunners make sure it is stellar! So, here's a curated list of the best HK drama apps to catch up on your favorite HK dramas

    "TV from Hong Kong. If you are into ads, ads, and more ads, this is the app for you. Personally, I just use it to stream a couple of shows I like, and it does that well, but the ads are a bit distracting but I can't complain since it offers free watching of hong kong drama online."

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that Hong Kong has the largest number of skyscrapers—buildings with more than 14 floors? If you thought New York City has got the most number of tallest buildings in the world, you got that wrong. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China has 1,303 soaring skyscrapers and over 7, 840 high-rise buildings all in all. This makes Hong Kong one of the richest cities in the world. Also, if you are traveling to Hong Kong, a ‘mandatory’ selfie at Hong Kong Disneyland is a must. Hong Kong Disneyland is still one of the most popular theme parks all over the world. This is despite the fact that the 7.5 million visitors of Disneyland theme park in 2014 dropped to 6.1 million in 2016.

On a different note, Hong Kong has more in store for everyone than its famous theme park. They have one of the largest and most dynamic film entertainment industries in the world. Hong Kong is considered to be a major exporter of film and television content, it takes up a fair share of the regional market. The union of Hong Kong and mainland China in terms of film production resulted in a total of 89 films in 2016. To prove Hong Kong drama's quality, Hollywood is interested in acquiring rights to remake Hong Kong movies and Hong Kong dramas. In the realm of television programs, China has the largest television market in the world given its large population. Yet, if you are into Asian TV shows, you might also want to check our list of the best Korean dramas here.

    "iDrama is a decent app to watch various Hong Kong dramas, but it has one major fault. Too darn many advertisements worsen the experience and become an annoyance after a short period. In addition, it's not totally refined and sometimes crashy."

    "A strong plus for this app is that it has the latest of all Hong Kong dramas, so whatever your interests are, you can find it here. But there are problems with the app. Sometimes episodes will not display on specific players like they should. Overall, however, it's a good tool for seeing these dramas in their native language. "
