Viu, a pan-regional OTT video service by PCCW Media, has debuted its latest Viu Original content that showcases a vast array of Chinese content from unique drama series, reality travelogs, culinary shows to infotainment talk shows by ViuTV, a domestic free TV service provider in Hong Kong. The programmes are available in Singapore and the Philippines immediately and will be progressively rolled out to Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.

Viu Original will further boost Viu’s already strong line-up of premium Asian content by introducing the ViuTV productions which are engaging to viewers in Southeast Asia.

Janice Lee, Managing Director, PCCW Media Group, said, “Today’s viewers are changing the landscape of content industry not only with their online multi-screen viewing, but also in terms of their choice of content they are consuming. They are keen to expand the horizon of content they watch and to discover refreshing content that is not widely available already. Viu Original will satisfy their appetites for ‘real and relatable characters’ and we expect that the shows will create a buzz among viewers.”
