As you likely know, at the beginning of 2019, a change was implemented for the Viki Pass Standard Users (USA in my case) regarding the KOCOWA dramas licensed to Viki. Previously we had to wait a number of weeks to watch the new episodes for on-air KOCOWA dramas. Then when 2019 rolled around, the wait period changed to 365 days. Yes, waiting an entire year to watch the majority of the 2019 shows is tough-going, but that’s the life of a Viki Pass Standard user. Well, low and behold, I just looked through my collection list of 2019 KOCOWA shows to review the days for wait times, and now on every single drama it states that, after episode 2, all else is for VIKI PASS PLUS ONLY (!!!), rather than the set number of wait-time days (e.g. episode available in 183 days)
Please, could one of our well-versed Viki experts here, or someone from Viki please clarify this: Indeed, are all the KOCOWA dramas now completely and indefinitely locked to Viki Pass Standard users? Or, have I (hopefully) misunderstood, and the KOCOWA shows will still be available after the 365 day wait periods? Please advise.
Many thanks, sheishun
