I understand what you're saying but you've completely missed my point. I like Viki, but I do not like the way they treat their viewing public. What if I my choice was not to watch the content from the three TV networks they've formed a partnership with? Would I then have an option of say a $7.99 subscription price instead of the $9.99 price they're forcing on everyone for the privilege of watching shows without the wait, you know, like we use to have. The delay for long-term subscribers, without any other options then paying what Viki wants, was underhanded. No, I don't like ads, and I highly respect ALL the volunteers who make foreign entertainment available to me. But some notification for long-term subscribers would have been appropriate, and not the second hand treatment currently being given.
Your snarky response was not appreciated from the perspective that the Viki company should have been telling me what the changes were and if there was any other options. As I mentioned I was not free-loading, I was paying for the opportunity to watch content AND I'm supporting their opportunity to expand their business, pay salaries, etc.. What my complaint was is this, failure to notify long-term subscribers, failure to support APPs for TV use, failure to treat their customers with respect. I'm reading lots and lots of complaints about Viki customer service not responding for help or questions. So why should they care if I'm unhappy.
What I was saying is I'm tired of being treated like a "whiner" just because I'm not happy with the way this company has chosen to run their business while riding rough shod over their customer base. Your comments provide a little clarification but fail to even acknowledge my issues. Did I find your comments helpful, only a little. Blame the subscriber, that's what you did.
