Sabay Digital Corporation is a leading digital media and entertainment group in Cambodia which formerly known as CIDC Information Technology was formed in 2007. Of course, young Cambodian will know this company by brand name 'Sabay' on its entertainment contents (Sabay News and Sabay Leng or Sabay Games, I could say that). Most traffic sources come from sharing on social medias, I think this reason why recently Sabay News portal has extended the channel to spread news on different categories using Facebook pages (Sabay News Entertainment, Sabay News Technology, Sabay News Social, and Sabay News Sport).

Since the visitors and popularity had gained enough, it gets the stand for business oriented such today.
