Korean Networks Sign For BBC Factual, Entertainment Shows

Pay-TV and FTA channels sign pre-MIPTV deals

HONG KONG – BBC Worldwide has licensed packages of factual and entertainment content to a trio of South Korean TV groups.

Announcing the deals on the eve of next week’s MIP TV trade show in Cannes, the British Broadcasting Corporation’s commercial arm said that it had sold factual programming for the first time to Hyundai Media’s new factual pay-TV channel, Health Medi TV, which was launched in December last year.

Another pay-TV group, YTN signed up for several of the org’s top ranked natural history and factual titles. These include BBC Earth’s “Earthflight” (pictured) which combines state-of-the-art technology and sophisticated techniques to show the world from an aerial perspective; Polar wildlife show “Frozen Planet;” and “Africa,” a series which journeys through five contrasting regions of the giant continent.

Free-to-air channel KBS picked up the BBC’s entertainment series, “The Musketeers”, inspired by Alexandre Dumas “Three Musketeers;” and natural history title “Hidden Kingdoms,” which puts the microscope on the planet’s smaller animals. 

All programs will also be available on Health Medi TV, YTN Science and KBS’s TV Everywhere service.
