Ku6

Ku6 Media Co., Ltd is one of the leading online video portal companies in China.

By continually providing users with the latest and most interesting video content, Ku6 has always been at the forefront of China’s online video market. Operating since 2006, Ku6 has been developing rapidly, building a major media platform to provide differentiated marketing services to our advertising partners.

Ku6 was formally established in 2006. In 2009, Ku6 was acquired by Shanda and became the world’s first video site listed on Nasdaq. Backed up by Shanda’s resources, Ku6 is aimed to create a platform for short-form, user-generated video content. In April 2011, Shanda invested 100 million dollars in Ku6. In April 2012, Ku6 announced that number of videos uploaded daily reached 200,000, and monthly unique visitors reached 220 million.

Its major rivals are Youku and Tudou.
