BEC World has been distributing its content worldwide through various distribution partners since 2018. BEC has licensed over 6,200 hours of Thai dramas across Asia, Latin America, and Africa, with better-than-expected performance in South East Asian markets by the end of 2022.
The Company's global content licensing business began in early 2018 with "The Crown Princess" to Tencent Video (an OTT Platform), which also marks BEC's first successful simulcast licensing internationally. It received over 280 million views by the end of 2018 and ranked top 5 of the platform's most-viewed Thai language content. The resounding success of "The Crown Princess" resulted in BEC's expansion in other ancillary businesses, such as licensing & merchandising, and event activities. In 2019, "Love Destiny" entered South Korea and has resonated well with the locals, in addition to an already solid fan base in Southeast Asia through regional and global streamers and free-to-air channels. In 2022, BEC's Thai dramas entered the African content with "Wave of Life" and "The Unidentical Twins."
BEC World is committed to strengthening its global position as a leading entertainment company by producing high-quality content across all genres. Thai dramas will go from strength to strength outside Thailand across all platforms, and we are excited to be at the forefront of this global trend.
