Dramafever, the streaming network with an Asian flavor, is launching in Australia and New Zealand. It kicks off with Chinese fantasy “Ice Fantasy” as well as its familiar mix of Korean TV drama series.
The series is based on the popular novel by cult Chinese writer Guo Jingming (“Tiny Times”) and stars Feng Shao Feng (“Prince of Lan Ling”) and K-pop songstress Victoria Song, part of group f(x). It is initially being simulcast in Australia, New Zealand and the U.S. on DramaFever with English subtitles – and in Latin America with Spanish and Portuguese subtitles – within 24 hours of its original broadcasts on Hunan TV in China. New episodes debut every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
DramaFever, which was acquired by Warner Bros. Digital Networks in February 2016, has a library of more than 2,000 episodes available in Australia and New Zealand at launch. Other new Korean drama releases to follow include “Cheese in the Trap” (2016) and “Oh My Ghostess.”
“DramaFever has established itself as the go-to destination for fans of K-dramas and Asian content in particular, along with additional international programming, and we are excited to be launching in the region with such a strong line-up,” said co-founder and president Suk Park.
The company’s content is available on demand on its own website, on iPhone, iPad, Android, Chromecast, Roku, Samsung Smart TVs and PlayStation 4. It also syndicates a portion of its library to Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, and iTunes.
