The events of Vikings are set in the 9th century. Crossbows are used extensively by the Franks in several episodes, but at this time the crossbow appear to have largely fallen out of use as a war weapon. Evidence of their use in battle is not apparent again until the 947 AD siege of Senlis.
Additionally, crossbows are widely known as being incredibly difficult to span (cock) and mechanical assistance was commonly used. The French crossbow archers can be seen spanning the bows with minimal effort, and maintaining an impressive rate of fire. See more
