Viki to Stream 500-Plus Hours from Indonesia’s MNC Group


SAN FRANCISCO: Viki has partnered with Media Nusantara Citra (MNC), Indonesia’s largest broadcast network, to stream more than 500 hours of new shows worldwide on and apps.

The pact includes a number of popular dramas and movies from Indonesia, making Viki the first and only platform in the U.S. on which these titles will be available. Among the titles is Kau Yang Berasal Dari Bintang, the Indonesian remake of the hit Korean drama My Love From the Star.

The deal also marks the first time MNC has allowed a partner to have worldwide streaming rights and is the largest volume deal to date for Viki from Southeast Asia.

“We’re thrilled to partner with MNC on our largest deal from Southeast Asia to date,” said Joanne Waage, Viki’s senior VP of programming and partnerships. “Viki’s vision is to bring together great entertainment and fans everywhere, breaking down cultural and language barriers along the way; this certainly is one great step toward this goal.”

“We are excited about the Viki partnership as we have a strong belief in digital media and a global video platform like Viki for the growth of our contents business, one of the various avenues to entertain our audiences in global markets,” added Jimmy Kim, the senior VP of MNC contents, licenses and events.
