Turner’s K-culture channel launches on Astro

Turner Broadcasting has launched its Korean entertainment channel Oh!K on Malaysian pay TV platform Astro.

The channel is programmed with Korean drama and entertainment series, which largely hail from Korean free-to-air broadcaster MBC.

Most of the MBC shows go out on Oh!K within a day of their Korean TX.

The high definition channel launched in southeast Asia last October and has since secured carriage on the the Singtel and StarHub platforms in Singapore.

Agnes Rozario, vice president of Astro’s content management group, said: “Oh!K HD offers the best and latest MBC content from Korea. Oh!K will broadcast shows on the same day as Korea ensuring that Astro remains the easiest and fastest way for customers to watch their favourite Korean shows.”
