Korea: CNN, Cartoon Network for pooq
April 29, 2016
CNN International, international TV news channel, and Cartoon Network, Asia Pacific’s leading kids’ channel, have increased their distribution in Korea with an agreement with pooq, an N-Screen platform.
The growing subscription service allows live video streaming and VoD across multiple screens and is currently providing content to 400,000 paying users. Non-paying subscribers to pooq can also watch the two Turner channels for free but only as short previews and only in Korea.
Phil Nelson, Turner’s Managing Director of North Asia, said: “This is the first-of-a-kind launch for us in Korea. To reach an expanded audience via an innovative new service like pooq is an important landmark in making our content available everywhere. Cartoon Network and CNN International are Turner’s international flagship brands and genuine world-class products.”
