Originally just an American venture, it has signed distribution deals with networks in Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, and Russia in recent years. As of July 2018, Viki had 40 million users spread across 195 countries. But plenty of countries don’t let their citizens view unfiltered videos. Internet censorship runs rampant in places like China, Russia, The Philippines, both Koreas, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, and UAE. The rise of a cool new technology makes lots of new first-time VPN users, most of whom don’t know the slightest thing about the technology. This blog will give a glossary of terms for new VPN users and explore which ones are best suited for unblocking Viki in a host of different countries.
