Prospective buyers beware: Chinese streaming platforms can never have any content that's critical of China, even those produced outside China's borders or for intended consumption abroad by other countries, because they would be punished by the Chinese government at home.

So there will always be that limitation on what's available to you, and even shows that's currently available can vanish on a whim by the Chinese censors. And suffice to say, innocent kids shows like Winnie the Pooh aren't even exempt from that idiocy.
