Pandora TV (판도라TV) is a video sharing website that hosts user-generated content. Founded in October 2004, Pandora TV is the first video sharing website in the world to attach advertisement to user-submitted video clips and to provide unlimited storage space for users to upload. The operating company, Pandora TV Co., Ltd., has its headquarters in the Seoul-Gangnam Building in Yeoksam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.[1][2]

In 2007, it was the fastest growing website in South Korea.[3] In 2008, it was the largest video sharing website in South Korea, and it had 3.6 million members. At the time, it had 35% of the Korean marketshare for video sharing sites.[4]

The site is available in Korean, and since April 2008, in English, Chinese, and Japanese.

Pandora TV raised over $16 million from Silicon Valley venture capital firms - Altos Ventures and DCM - in two consecutive funding rounds 2006 and 2007, which represents the largest foreign investment made so far on any Korean Internet start-up.[5]
