windscribe for me.

they now have dedicated Netflix servers for
USA
UK
JP
CA

and all working fine on my mibox and nvidia shield since they have official app that is available on Android TV o/s version of the play store.

if you are using half baked China Android boxes then I don't know already.

Re: Best VPN Provider

Hello,

There is no best all-round VPN out there. I have tried almost every major service provider out there. It depends on what you need a VPN for exactly. I am currently using Ivacy VPN for Streaming Netflix in SG and torrenting. I saved 77% on their 2 Year Plan.

It's easier to get a mibox S for streaming

Can get lifetime Ivacy for usd40 at GDGT
Thinking of getting Ivacy. Found the lifetime subscription (5 years) at USD 36. Seems like a good deal.

Anyone able to post screenshots of the speeds they are getting on Ivacy? Many thanks in advance.

Seems legit though...

https://deals.gdgt.com/sales/ivacy-v...subscription-5

With a 10% coupon for new users.

Am more concerned with the speed and performance of the platform.

Also, noticed that they don't have many OpenVPN servers.

https://support.ivacy.com/kb/vpn-servers/

For existing Ivacy users, any concerns over security, since OpenVPN is supposed to be the best?

They really don't have loads of openvpn. I use their app usually which does a decent job. What type of security are you worried about? Speed is ok I guess. I can hit my usual 20-30mbps on their torrent server.

Thanks for the info.

Actually for iOS, you can just buy VIP 绿钻 in S$ with in-app-purchases from Apple App Store.

1 month S$2.98
3 months S$6.98
6 months S$12.98
12 months S$25.98

绿钻豪华版
1 months S$4.48
3 months S$9.98
6 months S$17.98
12 months S$38.98

I have not checked Google App Store yet.

Another potential easier way is to use WeChat. Add a Singapore Credit Card to your WeChat account and then you can receive WeChat Ang Bao in RMB. Pay S$ to your friends here in Singapore who has WeChat money and they can send you to Wechat Ang Bao in RMB. I believe you can buy QQ Points using WeChat.

But I have never tried this myself. I am happy with the free Xiami Music.

Xiami Music vip from Apple App Store
1 month S$2.98
3 months S$6.98
6 months S$10.98
12 months S$21.98

For Paid version, I believe QQ Music should be better since it has more songs.

Wanted to buy the QQ Music subscription, but the app says cannot support paid outside of China.

EDIT: ok, the VPN was disconnected when I tried, once I reconnected, the payment went through.

Any idea what the difference is between 付费音乐包vs禄钻豪华版?

EDIT 2: Replying to my own question...

From https://zhidao.baidu.com/question/36...ate_question_0

QQ音乐绿钻和付费包区别如下:

1、绿钻特权是可以听高品质音乐(付费歌曲不能听),免费设置空间背景音乐。付费包特权是听付费歌曲,并不是流量包。免流量服务才是QQ音乐定向流量包。
2、绿钻无非就是发弹幕的时候可以选对话框,音质都差不多,可以换明星皮肤。而付费音乐包则可以一个月内下载300首固定付费音乐。豪华音乐包可以一个月下载500首付费音乐。

3、QQ绿钻可以在线看收费MV、空间背景音乐免费用、QQ客户端显示图标、听歌更流程、下载歌曲更快这几个主要功能。这些功能是付费包不具有的。

付费音乐包 should be good enough for most overseas users. The extra perks for 绿钻豪华版 are mainly meant for users in China. They are basically the same when it comes to music listening, both allow 300 songs download.

Ref: https://y.qq.com/n/m/myvip/v6/index.html?_hidehd=1

The Baidu article may not be totally correct.


BTW, my old comments about Wechat Pay is no longer true, they start to put restrictions on those accounts without linking to a China bank account. So new sign up no longer can top up. Existing users can still spend whatever they have but may lose the ability to top up any time.

But thanks to your ios subscription tips, i managed to do it. only thing is i had to use VPN else they won't let me subscribe.

Thanks again!
