Viki’s Challenge: Getting Fans to Engage, Contribute, and Feel More Involved with Content

Viki’s fan base is young, diverse and very active. More than 91 percent of viewers binge-watch shows and 58 percent watch more than two hours a day. Since the digital media space is constantly evolving, Viki is always looking for new opportunities to push the envelope and provide a unique video on demand experience for its dedicated fans.

Viki’s Solution: Limelight Content Delivery Services

Viki relies on Limelight to deliver high-quality video content on any device to a fan base that averages more than 1.3 billion minutes watched per month. By working with Limelight, Viki has been able to expand its global footprint. Additionally, the combination of the value of its content with the high-quality experience enabled by Limelight’s Content Delivery Network (CDN) has helped convert passive viewers into highly engaged fans. Management can now keep up with its growing business and deliver high-quality video content to millions of Viki users anywhere in the world. Important features to Viki include:

Reliable performance

Viki viewers get broadcast quality content delivered consistently, reliably, and fast.

Global reach

Limelight’s global private network ensures Viki customers can watch online videos virtually anywhere they have an internet connected device.

Global scalability

Limelight’s CDN is proven, secure and can easily scale to meet high viewing demands.

Customer service

The Limelight support team is available 24/7 and offers remote interpreting to communicate with non-English speaking callers.

***The whole is greater than the sum of our parts. Many of our client case studies and products were originally part of Limelight, Layer0 or Edgecast. Limelight acquired Layer 0 then Edgecast to become Edgio, the complete platform you have today, so we’ve aggregated those case studies in a single library.
