BBC Worldwide has agreed a deal that sees a BBC Earth branded block in South Korea.
The block is now available on Korean cable channel KMH’s newly launched documentary channel, DocuOne. It launched together with DocuOne on July 18th, and will be available for six hours a day, in two hour prime time slots, as part of a basic cable package to over 12 million households. Programmes on the block, which include the award-winning Planet Earth and Frozen Planet are subtitled in Korean.
“Having previously worked with KMH to deliver premium BBC dramas, we are very excited to partner with them to bring our award-winning and ground-breaking natural history content to their viewers. We are excited that BBC Earth is in the lineup to kickstart DocuOne, and are confident that the block will be a hit in Korea,” said Soojin Chung, GM of BBC Worldwide in North East Asia.
