Company Background

Leshi Internet Information & Technology, also known as LeTV, provides online video services. With 350 million visitors per month and more than 250 million views per day, LeTV is one of China's most popular video sites, alongside Youku and Tudou.

Founded in 2004, LeTV streams about 100,000 TV episodes and 5,000 movies. The site offers some sports, art, music and animated content for free; for a monthly fee of 40 yuan (about $6.25), users gain access to the latest movies and original dramas.

Video streaming services have developed independently in China, in part because access to YouTube is restricted there. LeTV's revenue mainly comes from membership fees and advertising, though sales of smart TVs, released in July 2013, have been growing rapidly. The company last year exceeded its sales goal of 1.5 million units.

In May 2015, LeTV released three smartphones under its own brand. The base model, the Le 1, is priced at 1,499 yuan, but subscribers with annual memberships to the video site get a 300 yuan discount. The company has teamed up with well-known Chinese movie directors to produce programs exclusively for its smartphone customers.

While video streaming is gaining popularity in China, rights fees for popular TV programs and films are rising. LeTV is diversifying its business to shore up earnings and attract more members.

Leshi Internet Information & Technology Corp. Beijing engages in the provision of online video broadcasting services.
