As a reminder, the new channel page is gradually being released to all users. This started early July with initial availability to 5% of users worldwide. Within the next 1-2 weeks, it will be available to 20% of users.

For the users who get the new channel page and want to apply to be a channel manager for a show, the application form is currently a Google form. This is temporary. For all other users who see the older channel page, the application form will remain the same.
Discover more hit films! The movies page has been added to the navigation bar on web, under the "Explore" dropdown menu.
I suddenly have since today that if I go to the page of a show through my laptop that I have the old version and if I go to the same page through my phone, then I have the new version.
Is this normal?
because I liked the new version a bit more than the old one
Today I got the new design, too and it’s so ugly, I hate it!
No coverpages anymore on the main page, so Viki pushes out the next “species” of Volunteers? Only if you go to the “Subtitle Team” you can find the coverpage, even the English one. In future, who will still spend hours to create a coverpage, if you hide them from the mainpage? And “Subtitle Team”, hello Viki! This is our Volunteer Team and this team does not only do subtitles, but segments and edits, too!
Where are the episodes? They should be on the main page! If you scroll down, you can find the clips and teasers, but not the episodes, you must click on “episodes” to watch them. Are those clips and teasers so important, that you put them on the main page, but hide the episodes under an extra button? I never watch those clips, esp. if there are so many of them. This is weird, really weird!
Concerning the team it’s positive, that you still can choose between CM, moderators, segmenters and subtitlers. But negative, that you don’t even show all moderators from a bigger team. People are lazy and not everyone will scroll down, if they are looking for a respective moderator, so they will bother the CM more.
Nope, I don’t like it and will switch back to the old version as long as this is possible.
Yes, I’m not sure if I shall ask someone to make a pretty wall. I mean 99% of the people will not even see it anyway. It’s on the team tab but burried under the other team stuff. Not that that team stuff needs to be burried under the wall but the wall needs to be up front in my opinion, otherwise what’s the purpose of making them look nice?!
I really wish they would ask us about design ideas before they implement it.
The dark mode is already a mess, the new inbox too (way too long loading and often unavailable or stuck that I cannot open new messages or that the page copy past reply text from other messages into a newly opened message…) and now the channel design too.
Maybe they should split mobile from desktop mode. I somehow got the feeling that many of these new layout decisons are somehow related to mobile and viewer’s perspective mostly.
