The result isthat we are able to serve up local programming that resonates well with our highly-engaged users in Thailand.”
Mr. Silamanonda added, “Viu regards this partnership as a win-win growth strategy by which we expand our audience, while GMM is able to reach its Gen Z and millennial viewers via digital screens from our platform. The tie-up also provides Viu with an opportunity to help develop the Thai entertainment ecosystem.”
