Will be seen on Skylife, the country's only satellite pay-tv operator

Sundance Channel and WE tv will launch on Skylife, South Korea’s only digital satellite pay TV operator, after Rainbow Media secured licensing from the Korea Communications Commission.

Skylife provides over 200 video and audio channels including 50 HD channels such as Sundance and WE tv. Launching its service in 2002, Skylife holds over 2.4 million subscribers as of Dec. 1.

Last month, Sundance and WE tv launched on SingTel’s feevee service Mio after Rainbow Media completed a carriage deal in Singapore. This came after Rainbow Media, which is a unit of Cablevision Systems Corporation, signed up in November to distribute the networks to Asia for the first time via the Measat-3a satellite.
