Do you know you can watch VQQ outside China legally, without a VPN (virtual private network), a proxy server or its Ten-Cent app?
In short, you just go to VQQ site and enjoy its freely available films legally.
The best part is, you do not infringe on the legal rights of the website.

You may ask, isn’t all China-based streaming video sites are geo-restricted or geo-blocked?
In other words, those living outside China cannot access their streaming videos.
Most online articles have been telling us that we need a Chinese IP address to access these China-based websites.
However, from my own experience, it’s not really true.
You CAN still watch many of the free full-feature movies from V.QQ site (腾讯视频) without having to bypass the geo-restrictions.
I say many free full-feature films and NOT ALL of them.
But you have to put up with trailers/commercials at the beginning and in between show.
I am living in Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA and I have been viewing many of the free content of V.QQ all this time.
Watch VQQ Outside China
If you don’t believe me, try it out for yourself.
Now you can watch the full 2001 flick “Ali” for free.
This Hollywood biographical sports drama film co-written, produced and directed by Michael Mann.
The film focuses on ten years in the life of the boxer Muhammad Ali, played by Will Smith, from 1964 to 1974.
You just click here.
Wait, there is more…
Now click this link to watch the 2016 science fiction action movie “Assassin’s Creed“.
It stars Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Charlotte Rampling and Michael K. Williams.
When the show begins you may see lines of Chinese characters streaming across the top part of the movie, while the movie is playing.
To remove them, click on the orange color Chinese word 弹 with a dot in front below the movie.
It will change to white color, and the stream of Chinese characters will immediately disappear.
It is the 2016 American fantasy adventure film directed and co-produced by Steven Spielberg.
The movie stars Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Penelope Wilton, Jemaine Clement, Rebecca Hall, Rafe Spall and Bill Hade.

The quality of the streaming movies from V.QQ is excellent.
How To Watch V.QQ
You CANNOT use the Google English translation of the site to access the free movies.
You have to access V.QQ in its original Chinese language.
If you do not understand the Chinese language, the best way to get around the site, you need to copy the Chinese characters onto Google Translate.
Anyway, first you go the V.QQ homepage.
Then you click on the “Movie Library” (电影片库).
The page will show you the content categorized by type, genre, country, year, etc.
From here you can select and filter the shows which you like to watch.
From my own findings, even though the movies are categorized as “Free” (免费), not all of them can be viewed.
But there are still quite a handful of great films (new and old Hollywood classics) which can be watched directly from the site.
However, those under paid, VIP and all the TV series CANNOT be viewed.
Anyway, here are some links I have selected which you like to check them out:
Note: Not ALL of these movies can be viewed.
Here are free Woody Allen films you can watch right away, without VPN or via a Chinese IP address.
Most importantly, you can watch V.QQ outside China legally and not using a VPN or a proxy server.
