Viu bolsters Asian content through volume deals with Huace Film & TV and Huace Croton Media
Viu, PCCW’s leading pan-regional OTT video streaming service, continues to expand its offerings to bring fresh and engaging premium Asian entertainment through its volume deals with China’s largest TV and film media companies – Huace Film & TV and Huace Croton Media.
Being the first OTT player to bring Korean entertainment content across the region, Viu takes pride in being the one-stop service for viewers to access one of the largest volume and widest selection of Korean content titles. With a growing demand for other types of Asian content such as Chinese dramas (C-dramas), Viu-ers in seven markets including Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia can now enjoy over 2,000 hours of Chinese content that is now available to them with these volume deals.
As part of the partnerships, more than 30 C-dramas including highly raved titles such as Eternal Love of Dream – one of the most-watched dramas on Viu, A Love So Beautiful, My Amazing Boyfriend 2 and The Brightest Star in the Sky were released late last year. More award-winning and star-studded popular hits such as Eternal Love, The Princess Wei Young, Love O2O, Love and Destiny will also be released from July onwards.
Ms. Virginia Lim, Chief Content Officer of Viu, said, “We continue to offer the best and most relevant content to our viewers. Besides having one of the widest selections of fresh Korean content, Viu also takes a leadership role in offering a diverse array of content through our various partnerships with leading production companies. By expanding and evolving our content proposition to meet the needs of today’s audience, Viu remains the go-to platform for premium Asian entertainment content in the region.”
In addition, Viu is pleased to offer our Viu-ers the highly anticipated Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: The Movie: Mugen Train, The Penthouse 3 and Voice 4! Based on one of the best-selling manga series of all time with more than 150 million copies in circulation, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba: The Movie: Mugen Train continues the story from its critically acclaimed anime series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. Clinching numerous accolades including Anime of the Year: Grand Prize at the Tokyo Anime Awards Festival 2020, the anime series has sparked a viewing frenzy since its premiere and became one of the top-viewed anime titles on Viu across the Asian markets.

Su Ryeon will do anything to exact revenge on the adults that wrecked her child’s life. Seo Jin has cultivated a successful career as a classical singer but her daughter seems to lack her talent. Yoon Hee refuses to live a life of poverty and tries everything she can to move into the Penthouse with her daughter.
