Introducing the New Viki Homepage

Millions of passionate drama fans like yourself come to Viki every week to watch and talk about your favorite Asian dramas. We are excited to roll out a new homepage design today to better help you discover content you like, and to provide easier access to the shows that you are following.

We’ve improved the layout of our homepage to make it easier for you to find the shows that are important to you. A new, three-column design makes it easy to see in one glance what shows are currently trending, as well as what’s on air and what’s coming soon to Viki. We’ve also added a new miniaturized TV guide on the homepage itself, to make it easier for you to see all the newly added episodes each day.

Personalized recommendations just for you

Not sure what you want to watch next? Don’t worry. Viki can now provide you with personalized show recommendations right on the homepage. Powered by the latest in machine learning technology, our recommendations engine will provide you with personalized show recommendations based on what you have previously watched. Check it out!

A shout out to our volunteer community

We know how important our volunteers are to the success of Viki, and so we wanted to thank the community. Every week, we will showcase the top subtitlers and segmenters of the week right on the homepage as a small token of appreciation for the hard work and many hours that they have put in to make Viki a better experience for everyone. Thank you so much!
