Turner launches Oh!K channel in Hong Kong

Turner and PCCW have announced the availability of a slew of Korean entertainment, premium drama series as well as variety and music programming across a number of platforms.

The subscribers can watch a selection of top-rated shows on Turner’s 24-hour linear channel Oh!K from January 12, 2016. In addition, MBC shows are available through now TV’s SVOD service, Oh!K On Demand, as well as via Viu, a newly-launched OTT service from PCCW. Another part of the Turner-PCCW agreement is the delivery of MBC shows on now TV’s upcoming free-to-air channel, launching in April 2016.

Phil Nelson, Managing Director and Senior Vice President for Turner in Southeast Asia, said, “This is an outstanding multi-platform partnership. In its short history, Oh!K has grown significantly with the addition of Hong Kong to our distribution roadmap. Likewise, our content partnership with MBC has allowed new audiences – across all platforms – exposure to a truly impressive and exclusive line-up of Korean content.” 

Current MBC shows of note include Glamorous Temptation and Sweet Mob Family, which air on Oh!K within 24 hours of its premiere, and Korea’s number-one variety show Infinite Challenge the same week as its original telecast.

Hyuk Jae Choi, Director of Global Business at MBC, added, “This announcement is great news for fans of our content in Hong Kong. We know that they crave MBC dramas and variety shows in both Chinese and English, as soon as possible after their original Korean broadcast, and on platforms beyond just the TV screen. Through Turner, PCCW and MBC, this has become a reality.”
