I was watching a free show on Viki for the past few days. All the episodes were free. Then I logged on today, and all the episodes- even the ones I already watched- needed to be watched with a Standard Pass. This isn't the first time it happened to me.
Shows are licensed for a specific period of time and may be re-licensed with different details including plan types, when their current contract is up.
This is likely the case for the show you have been watching.
For more info on licensing, check out this blog entry written by our CEO on our blog: http://bit.ly/VikiLicensing
Hope this helps to clarify!
