Viki – further territory expansion

SyQic announced on 9 March 2015 an expansion of its agreement with global video service provider Viki, to make its cool2vu platform (www.cool2vu.com). available to SyQic customers in Europe, South America and Central America. SyQic is delighted to announce that it has now secured the rights from Viki to further extend its Korean entertainment service into India. The mobile compatible service is available in seven different languages and will now have an addressable customer base of 3.13 billion people across four geographic regions.

The cool2vu service is currently advertising supported until a subscription service is introduced later in the year. cool2vu is already generating advertising revenues in most countries where the service is available. SyQic currently has a revenue share arrangement with Viki.

Jamal Hassim, CEO of SyQic, commented: “We are delighted to be continuing the rapid roll-out of cool2vu, our Korean themed entertainment service, into the vast and dynamic market that is India. According to ComScore, the analytics company for the digital media industry, the total online video audience in India grew by 74 percent between 2011 and 2013 to 54 million viewers. This rapid and continuing growth in the Indian online video market, both in terms of viewers and consumption time, means there could be a substantial upside for the key players in this market. We therefore believe this development could represent a significant commercial opportunity for SyQic.”
