Rakuten is probably best known for owning companies like Viber, Lyft, and eBates. Yet they also own VIKI, a streaming service focusing on content from Korea, China, and Japan. Now that service is expanding to add support for Roku TVs and players.

Here is how VIKI describes their service:

Viki, a play on the words video and wiki, is the global TV site where millions of people discover, watch and subtitle global primetime shows and movies in more than 200 languages. Together with its fans, Viki removes the language and cultural barriers that stand between great entertainment and fans everywhere.

VIKI recently launched on Roku and supports Android TV, Apple TV, Fire TV, Chromecast, and mobile devices.

As best we can tell, VIKI launched in 2007 and has slowly been expanding. Not only have they been adding device support, but they have also been adding more content from around the world.
