Popular Asian streaming platform Rakuten Viki has added TVOD to its list of monetization models. The agenda was to help users access the latest online content much quicker and on a budget. The TVOD feature will first cover the US and Canadian audience who can also capture the content library of all previous movies.
Apart from this addition, this streaming platform is a win-win for online streaming users as it provides multiple streaming options such as 1700 TV shows and movies from Asia, free ad-supported streaming, tiered subscriptions and also covers close to all devices their services can be available such as mobile, desktop browser, firestick and more.
Ms. Sarah Kim, Senior VP of content and partnerships at Rakuten Viki stated, ‘’Rakuten Viki aims to bring some of the hottest Asian movies and dramas to fans within days after their debut in Asia. With the launch of TVOD, fans can quickly and easily access highly anticipated films like Josée, that they can then watch anytime, anywhere and at their own convenience. It’s also a way to watch in-demand, exclusive content that isn’t too hard on the wallet.’’
