KKBOX, Asia's leading music streaming service, was established in 2004 by a group of Taiwanese software programmers with a shared passion for technology and music. With the support from more than 500 international major and local independent music labels, KKBOX features 40 million legal tracks, including the most comprehensive Asia-Pop music library, and is currently available in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia with over 10 million users.
We are committed to creating a truly immersive online music experience to users, and to empower artists and their music through technological innovation. KKBOX members gain access to exclusive video, artist interviews, live concert reports, entertainment news. Only from KKBOX, ‘Listen with’ lets you in on the same tracks as your friends and favorite artists, so you can chat as you listen in real time. The yearly KKBOX Music Awards marks KKBOX’s position in the Asian music scene. KKTIX online ticketing and KKBOX Live concert streaming, all launched in 2014, get you to the shows you want to see, no matter where you are.
The expansion to Hong Kong in 2009 has resulted in steadily increasing subscriptions. Recognizing this success, Japanese telecom giant KDDI Group acquired a majority share of KKBOX’s outstanding stocks in December, 2010. In March, 2011 KKBOX accepted investment from HTC, the global leader in smartphone innovation and design; in August, 2014 KKBOX received investment from GIC, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund. With its advanced product technology, strategic vision and strong local partnerships, KKBOX is aggressively expanding into international markets.
