Watching Viki on a Samsung TV

Hi all,

according to some older forum posts, there is no way to watch Viki on a Samsung Smart TV via app or browser. Has anyone currently found a way to watch Viki on TV without buying devices like Apple TV, Chromcast, ... or using a PC/Notbook?


My question is addressed to the community and not to the support. The standard answer from support "We're sorry... blablabal ... watching Viki on the TV with Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV ... blablabla" is something I've read dozens of times here in the forum and doesn't help. I have a Samsung Smart TV and don't want to spend extra money to have another device + remote control on my table.

@Viki/Support: By the way, it is annoying to pay monthly for a streaming service and not even be able to watch it on a Smart TV (Samsung) without buying an additional device.

Best regards.

    Hi laohu,

    Thank you for writing in to Viki Support.

    As of 1 May 2018, the official Viki app on the Samsung App Store is no longer available. Any other Samsung Store apps with the 'Viki' name are not supported by us and you will not be able to stream videos there.

    Instead, we can recommend other options to watch Viki from your TV, such as Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, or using an HDMI cable.

    For more information, you can refer to for a list of TVs and devices that we do provide full support towards.

    Hope this clarifies and feel free to let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
