Turner Broadcasting's Korean entertainment channel Oh!K launched in Malaysia on Astro. The high-definition channel secured carriage in Singapore on Singtel TV last month and on StarHub TV on Oct. 20, 2014, when the channel officially launched in the region (see "Turner Launching Oh!K Channel In Southeast Asia").
Phil Nelson, Turner’s senior vice president and managing director of North Asia and Southeast Asia Pacific, said in a release: “Turner’s leading brands – CNN and Cartoon Network – have been key news and kids channels in Astro’s portfolio for years, so we can’t wait to delight Malaysian audiences with Oh!K, our latest general entertainment channel. Since its regional debut last year, Oh!K has already gained strong popularity, with some of the very best Korean drama and variety series airing within 24 hours of their original telecast.”
Oh!K is powered by content from leading Korean broadcaster, MBC, best-known for its popular drama productions. Astro is running the channel as a free preview (Channel 394) until the end of February. It will be available on Astro’s Korean Pack from March 1 onwards.
