[Solved] No Images within App on Fire TV & Google TV

I have no images showing within the app on both Fire and Google TV. Programmes all listed and episodes play just no images displayed, just a grey section.

I have cleared the cache and data as well as uninstalling and reinstalling the app but no change.

    Hello c_dickens_156,

    I'm sorry to hear that you experienced these issues!

    If your device is operating on Fire OS 5.2.8 and below, you will only be able to access Viki app version 2.9.4. On this version of the Viki app, you will no longer be able to receive newer updates and if you are experiencing issues, our team will not be able to fix them.

    In order to download the latest Viki app version 2.17.1 on your Fire TV devices, please ensure that your device is able to support Fire OS 6 onwards.

    Learn how to update or download the Viki app on Fire TV devices here. You can learn more about our supported devices here.

    Please let me know if the problem persists for you after the update and I would be happy to look into it for you!

    All the best,

  • Hi,

    My Fire TV is an old versions but I tested on, a new Google Chromecast with Google TV, as well and that had the same issue.

    The Chromcast install of the Viki app, 2.18.2, was new and once logged in, most of the images were blank, though occasionally got a few.  As on the fire TV, no issues playing programs just no images on the listings or episode guides.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your help and the issue was the wireless bridge. New release of the firmware resolved it. Not sure why just the Viki app was affected but all fine now.

    Thank you again for your help.
