Viki has become one of the most popular online streaming services to watch Asian dramas. In this guide I’m going to show you how you can watch from any country.
If you’ve tried to access Viki and it’s blocked in your country then you’re probably pretty disappointed. After all it’s probably the best site to watch new Asian dramas with subtitles in your language.
Unfortunately, Viki is restricted to watching from within some countries only, for example the United States.
If you try to watch from other countries like the UK, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, the Philippines you’ll either find you’re blocked from watching all the videos or you’re blocked from watching some.
Below I’ll show you how you can unblock Viki and watch from anywhere in the world.
Step 1: Get yourself a VPN app
To watch Viki anywhere outside its intended region you’ll need to get yourself a VPN app.
A VPN allows you to spoof your location so you appear somewhere else. Say for example you’re in the UK but you want to watch Viki. A VPN allows you to pretend you’re in the United States.
When using a VPN, Viki will be unblocked allowing you to watch anywhere in the world.
There are so many VPN companies available these days it can be difficult to know which to choose. My favourite for watching Viki is ExpressVPN. They’ve got apps for more devices than most and they’re really easy to use.
If you’ve got plenty of time on your hands then you’ll want to look around at a few different VPN choices so I recommend the following three. They all work for unblocking and watching Viki.
The Top 3 VPN services to unblock Viki:
If you want to unblock and watch Viki for a few months then it’s worth signing up for ExpressVPN’s 12-month package. They’ve got a special deal where you get 3 months free on top which makes the service 49% cheaper than if you were paying monthly. This gives you loads of time to binge Viki without the expense.
When you’ve decided on one of the above VPN services sign up and then continue reading below where I’ll explain how to use it to watch Viki anywhere outside its intended region.

Step 2: Watch Viki in any country
Now you’ve signed up for a VPN you’ll want to know how you can use it to watch Viki outside its intended region.
In the example below I’m using my favourite provider ExpressVPN because I find them slightly easier but you can use any of the 3 recommended services above.
How to watch Viki anywhere:
- Visit the ExpressVPN website by clicking here, choose a package length and sign-up.
- When you’ve signed up download their app from the Products section of their website or install it from your regular app store by searching for “ExpressVPN”.
- Open the app and login or activate it when needed.
- On the app press the Selected Location button.
- Then select United States and click on it.
- Press Connect if the app doesn’t automatically connect for you.
- When you’ve connected visit the Viki website or open their app and enjoy watching all their shows!
Now that you’re connected to ExpressVPN (or one of the other 2 providers from above) any websites will think you’re in America.
Most of the Viki TV shows and other content is available in America which means you’ll basically be able to watch everything.
If you find something that is restricted to watching in another country, simply disconnect from ExpressVPN, choose the country the show is available in and reconnect.
You’ll now magically be able to watch that too!

I know, I know, all this ‘VPN’ stuff sounds a bit sketchy but when you understand how it works you’ll realise it isn’t.
Remember, VPN apps are perfectly legal and legitimate way of protecting your privacy online. Just take a quick look at the example video below where I use ExpressVPN to unblock Viki and watch in just a couple of minutes.
As you can see from the video above it’s really easy to watch Viki in any country. You can be up and running in just a few minutes.
But will this work with my mobile or tablet?
Yes, of course!
It’s easiest to watch on a laptop or regular computer because all you’ll need is the ExpressVPN app and then visit the Viki website.
If you want to watch on your mobile or tablet it’s not much harder either. You should visit your regular app store and search for the Viki app.
Once you’ve got the app just connect to ExpressVPN as detailed above and you’ll be able to watch Viki on your mobile or tablet in any country.
Recap: How to unblock and watch Viki anywhere
To watch Viki outside it’s intended country and unblock any of the videos there you’ll need to get yourself a VPN.
I recommend using ExpressVPN because they’re really easy to use. They’ve also got a 30-day money back guarantee so it’s totally risk-free.
If you sign up for a year then you’ll even get 3-months completely free which makes the price 49% cheaper than if you were to pay on a monthly basis. You can of course sign up to either IPVanish or NordVPN as detailed earlier in this guide too.
Click the button below to visit the ExpressVPN, choose a subscription length and sign up.
Once you’ve signed up download their app to your device and connect to the United States. You can now visit the Viki website or use their app to watch any of their TV shows in any country in the world.
