The Viki app is not available on that tv (unlike Netflix), so if I want to watch from my tv I'd need to log in through my tv browser, which is tedious without a keyboard or mouse....
See if you can work out mirroring on your tv with your phone (depends on brand / OS etc so you need to search answers online)7
With my previous phone, I had to buy GoogleChromecast as I couldn't mirror anymore, and with that dongle, I can send Viki to the tv. It's a bit of a pain sometimes when the ipad goes to sleep etc, but it means I can use Viki on the TV. The ipad Viki app does chromecast, as does the android app. You can use the cheapest Chromecast version for this use, no need for the expensive one.
Viki used to be on Roku but it stopped being supported in Europe now, and probably all over the world now. But you could still see in their Viki if they have other ways of broadcasting. To me though, mirroring or chromecast would be the best/cheapest.
I also invested in a 5m long audio extension so I can listen with headphones, which I find easier to focus on another language.
