I tried subscribing to 酷喵 VIP but upgrading from youku VIP but it keep.asking for a China bank card. I tried to use a friend webchat China account to pay but it also wouldn't allow me me to do that.

Can you advise how you did it?
My WeChat wallet still got RMB 2500 so I can pay for the VIP myself under Android phone. But I have not upgraded to 酷喵影视VIP myself.

You have Youku VIP already and want to upgrade? How did you pay for Youku VIP previously?

I think this may be problematic.

Try the website to see if that works or not.
https://h5.vip.youku.com/upgrade_vip...ityCode=buy_h5

Right now under my Android phone, I do not see option to just pay for the upgrade, rather you have to pay for 酷喵影视 VIP in full.

Now there is a promotion to pay for quarterly VIP at RMB70 and Yearly VIP at RMB239.

One possible solution.
Say you have installed 酷喵影视VIP on the TV box, get your friend to scan the QR code using his/her WeChat QR code scan function. Then pay for the VIP from his/her mobile phone. The only thing is that now the VIP is linked to your friend’s WeChat account.

If you already have Youku VIP, another option is to install HappyCast乐播投屏 on the TV box and use DLNA Cast from phone. Then you do not need to pay for 酷喵影视VIP. Video quality may be limited to 1080p in this case.

I paid using apply store. Going to try getting my friend to scan the QR and see if it works. He even tried sending me an angpao but when I go to receive it ask for a China bank card.

Then why not continue to pay using Apple App Store?

No point messing with WeChat Pay already, it is not going to work for you without a China bank card.

You should be able to do that.

Youku account is linked, no matter it is on the PC, Android phone, Android TV box or iOS device.

How do you registered for Youku? I assume you register with your Singapore mobile number.

On your iPhone Youku, TOP left corner there is a QR code scan function, use that to scan the QR code on the Android TV box (酷喵影视app). Then you should be able to log in.

Sometimes you may need to log in using your Singapore mobile number and one time SMS as well.

If you have existing Youku VIP it will show the status on the 酷喵影视 app as well.

Then pay using iOS in-app purchase for 酷喵影视VIP on your iPhone. You should be able to see the VIP status on the Android TV box.

Using iOS is easier.

Try this to see if it works on your Android phone..

Temporarily install Alipay on your Android phone and ask your friend to log in with his account.

Under Youku app on your Android phone, pay for the 酷喵影视VIP using Alipay.

Uninstall Alipay.

Hi. Just to check, those who have Youku vip or 酷喵影视, are you still able to watch geo locked shows without the need for china vpn?

Yes, at least most of the shows. I encountered a few shows still locked though.
