Viki, officially known as Rakuten Viki, is a streaming website. Headquartered in California, Viki has offices in Tokyo, Japan, Seoul, and Singapore. The company was founded by Jiwon Moon, Razmig Hovaghimian and Changseong Ho in 2007. The initial funding was done by Neoteny Labs, which is based in Singapore and headed by Joichi Ito and Reid Hoffman. In 2008, the company started working out of its offices in Singapore and enjoyed the government backing to make the city a pan-Asian hub. In 2010 the company exited the beta version of the platform, and the services became available to the public. Viki was immediately acquired by Rakuten, a Japanese company, in 2013 for $200 million. Viki won the Crunchie Award for best international start-up in 2011. Currently, the platform showcases content much similar to Hulu In US markets. The content is put on the channel, and community volunteers help to put subtitles to it. Viki is known as the first platform which features real-time subtitling. The community members on Viki can subtitle the videos in the preferred languages and share the same with other users. The platform currently hosts subtitles in more than 200 languages.
