Channel to be part of MegaTV IPTV platform

HONG KONG – History HD channel will launch in South Korea from Jan 1 on the MegaTV IPTV platform. Move follows a deal between A&E Television Networks and Korea Telecom.

History HD content is already available as a video-on-demand service on MegaTV and on its two IPTV rivals SK Broadband (formerly Hanaro) and LG.

The History HD channel itself began to be rolled out in Asia in September with a launch in Hong Kong and Singapore, followed by Japan in October.

“The channel will play a very important role in developing IPTV in Korea,” KT said in a statement.
