Channel Description: Viki is an international streaming video service, similar to Hulu in the U.S., with content subtitled in many different languages.

Viki currently offers episodes of over 1,000 TV shows, including popular series like Tempted (Korea), The Flame's Daughter (China), Grand Prince (Korea), Radio Romance (Korea), and I Am Not a Robot (Korea). Although Most of Viki's programming consists of TV shows, as of April 2018 the service also offered nearly 300 movies in two dozen genres, including Action & Adventure, Comedy, Korean Drama, Documentary, and Family & Kids. Popular titles included The Last Women Standing (2015 - China), Plump Revolution (2012 - South Korea), and https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4067578/ (2014 - Singapore).
