No idea. This is what I read from the Internet. I happen to change my main phone to Android so I activated VIP on my Huawei P20 first.

Ref:
https://www.zhihu.com/question/29951...swer/527164331
I believe it is also not easy to get qualified for 88VIP for most of the people here in Singapore.

Firstly I believe you have to have Chinese version of Taobao/Alipay to qualify. Basically you will need to have a China bank account and Chinese mobile phone number. In my case we use my father in law's account to set up.

Secondly the normal price for Taobao 88VIP is actually RMB888 per year. For avid Taobao buyers then the cost goes down to RMB88.

In my case, my wife spent quite a lot on Taobao in 2018, much more than RMB888 anyway.

https://www.kaitao.cn/article/20180809110220.htm
开通条件:

  1)淘气值不够1000分的用户直接选择“888元开通”;

  2)淘气值大于等于1000分的用户,只要88元就可以开通;

  时限都是一年,如果超过时限,重新开通便可!

  .....

  这些app会员通享:

  价值198元的优酷vip、价值108元的饿了么超级会员、价值192元的淘票票全国卡、价值128元的虾米超级vip

If you trust the app developer then by all means go for it.

I will not do this myself on an iOS device -- no jailbreak, no apps from non-Apple-App-Store. Just my own preferences.

If the apps are from a different region of Apple App Store then that is still acceptable --- you can create an Apple ID for that region since the apps are at least vetted by Apple. But in this case it is a 3rd party app which has been kicked out of Apple App Store -- not sure about the reason though.

Take note Youku has three tiers of VIP.

Price is for reference only. I am not into Sports so the info may not be so accurate for sports.

1) 优酷VIP. Good for iPhone and iPad and Android Phone/tablets, up to 1080p HDR. No need to use VPN after paying. Still they may prompt you to switch to overseas version which may have less content. Just do not allow it to access content and say no to switch.

RMB118 per year now, usual price RMB198 per year.

2) 优酷TV or 酷喵影视VIP. Good for smart TV or Android TV boxes, 1080p/4k supported. Also supports lower tier Youku VIP functions. No need to use VPN after paying. Still they may prompt you to switch to overseas version which may have less content. Just do not allow it to access content and say no to switch.

App can be downloaded from Dangbei market or Youku website.
https://pd.youku.com/CIBN?screen=phone

So if you have Android smart TV or TV boxes, you should buy the 酷喵影视 VIP and install 酷喵影视 apk.

Price varies from time to time. Now it is almost the same for the first two tiers -- RMB198 a year for Youku VIP and RMB199-239 for 酷喵. Normally 酷喵VIP will cost more. Usual price RMB399 per year.

BTW, Taobao 88 VIP is only for Youku VIP, and now it costs about RMB120 a year to upgrade to 酷喵 VIP.

3) PP 体育, for sports. iOS version is from Apple App Store. Android phone version app is from its web site. TV version is called CIBN 聚体育 for Android TV boxes which can be downloaded from Dangbei Market. Not so sure if you need VPN or not. I tend to think you will need VPN.

PP体育VIP price depends on the things you like. EPL 英超 is RMB40 per month. Europe Soccer VIP is RMB60 per month now but usual price is RMB90.

PP体育高级会员 is RMB 98 per month now (usual price RMB150 per month) or RMB998 per year now (usual price RMB1498).

VIP for Tencent Video腾讯视频, you need VPN

Three tiers of VIP

Note: price is for reference only and it may vary due to currency exchange fluctuations and promotion. I am not into Sports so info about Sports may not be accurate.

1) one for mobile phone and tablet (iOS and Android), up to 1080p
腾讯视频VIP under iOS
19 RMB per month, 53RMB per quarter, 208 RMB per year for auto subscription

If paying one time under iOS
25 RMB per month, 68 RMB per quartet and
233RMB per year.

It is a bit cheaper to pay under Android.
178 RMB per year for subscription and 208 RMB per year for one time payment.

2) The other tier is the above plus the TV version for Android TV boxes and Smart TV. 1080p and some 4K contents. The app is called 腾讯视频TV(云视听极光) and it is available in Dangbei market or directly from its website.

http://tv.qq.com/

超级影视VIP
30 RMB per month, 88 RMB per quarter, 348 RMB per year for auto subscription

If paying one time
50 RMB per month, 148 RMB per quartet and 488 RMB per year.

3) If you need Sport, then it is called 腾讯体育VIP. You can download the app from Apple App Store and the pay using in app purchase.
https://sports.qq.com/vip/

Android phone app download which seems to work on TV boxes as well.
https://sports.qq.com/kbs/m.htm

Confusion is that Tencent Video TV version 云视听极光 so got sports content. You may want to double check.

腾讯体育普通会员
RMB22 per month now.
S$6.98 per month and S$15.98 for three months if paying through iOS

腾讯体育高级会员
RMB60 per month now

For free version, ads supported Transocks free may be better than SpeedIn free line in my experiences.

For paid version SpeedIn may be a bit cheaper.

1) SpeedIn 快帆 VPN VIP

Often they have promotions

Now S$9 for 30days

S$20 for 90 days and you get 90days free, so it is S$20 for 180 days

S$52 for 360 days and you get 360 days free, so it is S$52 for 720 days.

2) Transocks Pro (transmoon)
S$7 for 30days
S$17 for 90 days
S$64 for 360 days

3) Transocks free version remove ads
S$4.5 to S$33

You can sign up using iPhone or Android Phone or browser for all three tiers of VIP, including 酷喵影视 VIP, just the payment method will be different.

If you pay through iPhone it will go through Apple App Store and it is slightly more expensive at RMB208 a year now (usual price RMB418) which will be converted to S$45.98 and charge to your credit card linked to your Apple ID.

If you pay through Android phone or Browser, you can pay through Alipay and Wechat Pay and the price is now at RMB199 (usual price RMB399).

Apk for Android TV Box or TV
https://pd.youku.com/CIBN
https://m.dangbei.com/wap-view-5145.html

If you do not have either Alipay or WeChat Pay, paying through iOS is more convenient.

Disclaim: I use Taobao 88VIP to activate my normal Youku VIP. I do not have 酷喵影视VIP myself. But there is a report in a Facebook group that it works in Android TV box (Nvidia Shield TV) with 1080p and 4k support, without VPN. YMMV.

Another disclaim: right now Youku VIP does not need VPN to access Youku but it does ask you to switch to 海外地区 from time to time so be careful to say NO. I am prepared to pay for VPN like SpeedIn myself if one day it needs VPN.

Same disclaim for QQ Music VIP, right now I do not need VPN to access QQ Music since I paid RMB180 for the 绿钻豪华版VIP. Still not so sure if it is a loophole or by design.

Same disclaim for Xiami Music, right now I do not need VPN to access either the free version or Xiami Music VIP content. Still not so sure if it is a loophole or by design.

Just want to say you may need to prepare to use VPN in the future.

I do not have 爱奇艺 VIP but there is no problem to register as a member under iOS with Singapore phone number. Same for Android.

In my case, I registered a WeChat account using my Singapore phone number and log in to WeChat using that WeChat account. But I believe you can do without that step as well, just register using your Singapore number.
