June 2, 2010
A South Korean cable television company has launched an online service allowing users to access shows anywhere. CJ HelloVision said the 'Tving' service offers 53 live channels plus VOD, a service similar to that offered by US cable operator Comcast.
Tving at first will only be accessible on devices such as desktop computers and laptops but the company also plans to introduce a version for mobile devices.
Users will pay 3,500 won ($3) a month for full access, much lower than for conventional cable TV services, which range from 8,000-31,000 won.
