Malaysia's iFlix fights for screen time across Southeast Asia

The Kuala Lumpur headquarters of iFlix, which began with only two employees two years ago.

KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysia's iFlix is aiming to be the leading online video streaming service in emerging markets and it has already gathered more than a million subscribers across Southeast Asia.

The company started out with just two employees in Kuala Lumpur two years ago and now has 250 staff in six cities in Malaysia and overseas. It expects to double that number over the next year, as Asians turn increasingly away from television to smartphones and other devices for streaming.
