Watch TV on your Android device with Viki

View thousands of shows from around the world using Viki.

Applications for fans of obscure and rare media are always high in demand. Viki is an application that allows free access to TV shows, music, movies, and news from around the world. The content ranges from the highly popular to the extremely obscure. Given the rarity of applications that access this particular content, this app should satisfy many fans.

Viki offers an easy installation with very little hassle. A clean and well-designed layout makes navigation simple enough even for the beginner. The text is easy to read, and the graphics are colorful and pleasant to the eye. Users of all ages and skill levels should have no problem conducting searches and enjoying the found media. This app also integrates the use of social media so that users can share titles with their friends and rate the media. The media content comes from all over the world and is translated into more than 150 languages. This enables users to explore media that they previously may not have ventured to experience. While it is doubtful that the video quality is HD, it is high quality nonetheless. The only downside of this application is that it uses quite a bit in the way of resources. While video is streaming, a significant portion of your CPU is being used. Some devices may require the user to close all apps running in the background to maintain stability of the application.

Providing access to a vast resource of media, Viki delivers what it promises. While this application is appropriate for all users and highly recommended for everyone to at least try, it should be considered as a must-have for all those media junkies out there in search of more rare content.
