How do I receive livestream reminders?
To receive reminders you must register or be logged in to your account on Viking.TV. Then, hover over "My Account" in the top right of the screen and select "My Reminders" from the dropdown menu. On this page, you can also sign up to receive reminders for when upcoming livestreams are about to start on Viking.TV. The list provides an overview of what each day of the week is offering. You can sign up for all the livestreams, or you can sign up for individual days that interest you.
Why can't I view any of the livestreams?
If you can't view any of the livestreams or you can only see a spinning circle, please first make sure that your computer is up to date and also that your web browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox etc) is up to date. If you're using an old version of either web browsers (especially Internet Explorer or Safari) there is a possibility that the video player will not display or function correctly. Please try using an alternative web browser such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge and see if this resolves the issue.
If this doesn't resolve this issue, get in contact us at email@example.com and we'll be more than happy to get to the bottom of this.

I missed today's livestream; how can I watch it later?
If you missed today's livestream, don't worry; all livestreams on Viking.TV are recorded and available to watch the following day so that you can enjoy the session again or share it with someone who might have missed it. You can find the episode you missed by clicking on the relevant day of the week within the "This Week on Viking.TV" playlist and you will see the previous episodes from those days below.
Why do I only see a spinning circle?
You will see a spinning circle until the streaming starts. If you continue to see a spinning circle after the start of the scheduled session please refresh your page. The livestream should play automatically in most browsers, but if you don't see anything please click the play icon in the video window. If you cannot hear any sound, please ensure that your speakers are turned on and your sound is not muted.

Are closed captions available?
Unfortunately, at this time we do not support closed captioning for our livestreams, but for most of our on-demand content we embed YouTube which offers a closed caption feature that automatically generates captions. It's not perfect, but you can activate this by hovering over the video and click on the "CC" icon as shown below:
