South Korea started to watch cable TV on Internet with “Tving”

Cable TV on internet

Yesterday CJ Hello Vision, one of South Korea’s leading cable TV operators, launched a service that allows the users to watch 53 live cable TV channels on internet as well as videos on-demand. Dubbed as ‘Tving’, it promises better quality than IP (Internet Protocol) TV and costs just 3, 500 won ($3) of monthly fee. Now available only on devices such as laptops, desktop PCs, a version for the mobile devices is planned to be developed.

Don’t know why it is dubbed “Tving”, after the small town in Sweden?

    Actually, they launched it in April. The quality is really good for Nat. Geo Wild, and the sports channels, but CNN and Bloomberg are just above tolerable.

    Here’s the introductory pricing structure:

    1 Day (+7 free days of viewing) = 1,000 KRW (regular 1,500KRW)
    30 Days (+30 free days of viewing) = 3,500 KRW (regular 5,000KRW)
    Monthly (+30 days of free viewing) = 3,000 KRW (regular 4,500KRW)
