    Hi guys,

    Thank you for your patience and understanding while we worked hard on the Roku Beta app.

    We've built this app from scratch to fundamentally address the issues that were affecting our old Roku app, and, most importantly, provide you with the best user experience.

    The new Roku Beta app is now available. To learn how to download and install the app, click here.

    I'm having trouble with Roku app playing certain programs but it's not giving me an error message. Just crashing back to the info page for that drama.

    I am getting the "This episode is only available to Viki Pass subscribers.  It will be available to everyone in 7 days.  Want instant access?  visit viki.com/roku-pass to subscribe."  The problem is I am already a subscriber!!!  I have reinstalled the app on my Roku tv and it says the same message.  I am currently trying to watch Just Between Lovers.  If I go to the app on my phone and start to watch the next episode it will show up on the Roku.  Not sure what the problem is but I am not happy about it.

    I had the same issue as you can see. It seems that you actually have to go to the serie's page and click on the next episode rather than let it run on its own (as you watch). My theory is that there is another popular drama on the que that we don't have access for as a standard viki pass.

    Hi everybody,

    I'm truly sorry for the problems you're experiencing with the Viki Roku app.

    We're working as fast as we can on building a new app that will solve all the issues you're facing on the current one. Due to multiple factors, it will take some time before the new app is released. For more information, please refer to this FAQ.

    We appreciate your kind understanding and patience on the issue.

    Thank you,

    Edit: okay after going on site with my computer. I was able to figure why I couldn't see the show. It' on viki plus. Omg I wish roku error message would have said that u need viki pass PLUS instead you need viki pass. ><  ah just thinking of all that waste time ><!

    Same thing is happening to me. I can't access a title on roku. It say I need a viki pass but I already have one. I login out and relink my roku again and still can't see it. I went to see all episode. It didn' work. I tried to search it and it didn' work. I also uninstall the app and still doesn' work.
