Time Warner Cable launches Korean channels in NY/NJ footprint
Time Warner Cable is now offering Korean-based channels TVK and TVK2 in its New York and New Jersey service area.
TVK is a 24-hour cable channel dedicated to serving the Korean-speaking community with a mix of news, dramas, movies, sports, business, health, game shows, entertainment and educational programming.
TVK2, a sister channel to TVK, targets second-generation Korean-American audiences and features music, lifestyle, drama, news and current event programs in both Korean and English. TVK2 also offers original programming, in English.
TVK and TVK2 are available on Time Warner Cable’s digital basic tier.
“TVK24 is thrilled to serve the second-largest U.S. Korean community, New York and New Jersey areas with the launch of TVK and TVK2,” said Eric Yoon, founder and CEO at TVK24. “With the high popularity of K-Pop and Korean dramas, TVK24 is excited to join Time Warner Cable’s lineup in serving the Korean-Americans and Asian-Americans with 24-hours of Korean programming. TVK24 has been providing K-Pop music videos on VOD to Time Warner Cable since last year and with the launch of TVK and TVK2, viewers will enjoy additional local original programming including news and programming from Korea.”
Based in Los Angeles, TVK24 is distributed by International Media Distribution, a wholly owned company of NBCUniversal.
