VK Video has already been dubbed YouTube’s competitor by the media. The social network noted that a separate application for the service will become a convenient entry point to a multi-million dollar content library. Users will be able to quickly navigate to personalized selections of films, series, TV shows, sports matches and e-sports broadcasts, as well as videos uploaded by users of VK video services. The platform has its own search engine and recommendation system.
