Viki Uses Limelight Networks to Deliver Primetime Shows and Movies to Millions of Viewers Across the Americas and Europe

Viki, a global TV site based in Singapore, delivers subtitled primetime shows and movies Over-the-Top (OTT) in more than 200 languages to millions of viewers via its industry-leading streaming platform. Viki offers exclusive shows from the top broadcasters in Korea and is considered the premier destination for Asian TV programs and movies.

Viki’s Challenge: Getting Fans to Engage, Contribute, and Feel More Involved with Content

Viki’s fan base is young, diverse and very active. More than 91 percent of viewers binge-watch shows and 58 percent watch more than two hours a day. Since the digital media space is constantly evolving, Viki is always looking for new opportunities to push the envelope and provide a unique video on demand experience for its dedicated fans.

“Content may be king, but the speed of the delivery and the quality of the experience are just as important. With Limelight Networks, we’re able to stand out from the crowd by giving fans the content they want, when they want it, on the devices they use every day. Our viewers can find the content they love and consume it seamlessly.”
