Oh!K expands into Indonesia
K-entertainment fans in Indonesia will now be able to catch the latest and best Korean content within hours of its world premiere with the launch of Oh!K on Tribe.
This new OTT service from XL Axiata, a telecommunications operator, offers its subscribers via the Tribe app exclusive access to fresh, first-run, localized and high-quality video, via mobile devices and online.
Oh!K currently boasts a slew of popular series including Monster, which will premiere later this month, and Marriage Contract, which is currently running on the channel. These express titles air within 24 and 48 hours of Korean telecast, respectively.
“Since Turner launched Oh!K in October 2014, the channel’s reach and popularity has grown significantly,” said Phil Nelson, Turner’s managing director for Southeast Asia. “In just 18 months, partners in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and now in Indonesia with Tribe, have responded to the growing appetite for quality Korean content.”
Other express titles on Oh!K include Just Married and Korea’s No. 1 variety show Infinite Challenge – starring celebrity hosts Yoo Jae Suk, Park Myung Soo, Jung Joon Ha, Jung Hyung Don, Hwang Kwang Hee and Haha.
Oh!K’s programming is also supplemented by special live simulcasts from Korea, such as the MBC Drama and Entertainment Awards and Gayo Daejun (Korean Music Festival) available on the channel.
