Bring popular global entertainment to your living room with Viki and Google TV

Guest to the Google TV blog, Karmela Angela Cortez, Product Manager, Viki shares some great music, tv shows, and movies from around the world.

Have you caught the entertainment craze from Asia? You know the K-dramas, K-pop, Bollywood, and international indie films you’ve heard about online? Then check out Viki for Google TV, a recent winner of a Google TV Hackathon that offers free TV shows, music videos, and more from around the globe (especially from Asia).

Breaking Language Barriers
Not only is our content free, but Viki will subtitle everything in your language of choice thanks to the many volunteers that are willing to help us. So whether you want to watch a K-drama like City Hunter or Anime thriller like Leiji Matsumoto’s Ozma, we got you covered.

Discover New Things To Watch
Our interface makes it easy for you to quickly find and discover new things to watch by checking the Recently Watched or Recently Updated queues. Feeling social? Then check out the Timed Comments feature which allows you to read running comments written by viewers like you.

If you’re casually browsing and not sure what to check out, then tune into the full-length shows, movies, and music videos available in normal viewing or HD. A couple staff picks include Korean movies like Sex is Zero or music videos from K-Pop stars like Super Junior, IU and T-ara. If you want to take your music listening to the next level, grab some friends and sing along with our Karaoke feature without having to leave the comfort of your home. 

So whether you love K-Dramas, Anime, Bollywood, international indie films, K-Pop or videos from any other country in the world, Viki has you covered with hundreds of subtitled videos available at your disposal.

Download Viki from Google Play.
