TVK24 celebrates 10 years of Korean television in the U.S.

Independently owned Korean American network marks new milestone

Los Angeles, CA – March 19, 2015, International Media Distribution (IMD), an industry pioneer in the distribution of 24-hour global networks congratulates TVK on completing its first decade of operation serving the Korean American audience across the U.S

From its state of the art production facility in Los Angeles, TVK24 owns and operates three distinct television services including TVK, TVK2 and TVK-Pop On Demand serving Korean American households from coast to coast.

TVK and TVK2 are nationwide digital basic channels available throughout various cable platforms. TVK produces live news, variety and music programming in-house. Popular entertainment shows and drama series are acquired and aggregated from top quality production studios in Korea. TVK2 serves a younger, more assimilated audience of 2nd generation Korean Americans.

TVK-Pop On Demand delights fans of all ethnic backgrounds with the true crossover appeal and mainstream success of Korean pop music “K-Pop.” TVK-Pop On Demand features music videos from the largest entertainment houses in Korea including SM, YG, JYP, DSP and many more. TVK24 boasts the rights to the largest K-Pop music video library in the U.S. including international sensations like Psy and 2ne1.

TVK24 has marked several key breakthroughs in its first ten years including the following important dates of record:

  • March 2005 Launched TVK to serve Korean-American communities in the U.S.
  • November 2009 Launched TVK2 to serve English speaking Korean Americans in the U.S.
  • September 2010 Launched TVK-Pop On Demand music video service nationwide on Comcast
     

Today, TVK-Pop On Demand is available nationwide to all digital cable subscribers of Comcast, Cox and Bright House Networks along with key Time Warner Cable markets including California, Hawaii, New Jersey and New York. In addition, TVK and TVK2 are available in top Korean American markets including California and New York.

Scott Wheeler, Senior Vice President of IMD says, “Ten years ago, TVK took a big risk in launching a Korean American channel solely funded by advertising. This is an extremely challenging business model, which speaks to the dedication and hard work the TVK team has contributed in achieving this milestone. Over the years, TVK24 has shown grit and vision in adding additional services to their portfolio including TVK2 and TVK-Pop On Demand. IMD is proud to distribute the entire suite of TVK24 products. We look forward to reaching new heights together in the years to come.”

Eric Yoon, Founder & CEO of TVK24 says, “I am so grateful to our team and business partners for reaching this milestone together. I look forward to delivering even more to our viewers and advertisers in the years to come.”
