‘Fan Channels,’ are unofficial channels that have been created by fans like you, and are guided by our Terms of Service. They are often created months in advance in anticipation of Viki licensing these shows. They have fan-generated show information, comments and posts, and also serve as a gathering ground for subbing teams to organize. Many fans also ‘follow’ the channel, so that they can get updates.
You can identify a Fan Channel through the 'Fan Channel' banner on the Channel's main page.
