All content will be HD content, and languaged in Korean. Shows will include Cities of the Underworld, The Universe, Ax Men, Dogfights, Ancient Discoveries, and Ice Road Truckers. “History HD debuted in Asia in September, and AETN has moved aggressively since then to distribute the service into other markets,” said Alan Hodges, vice president and managing director, Asia-Pacific, AETN. “This agreement builds upon our existing partnership with KT which we struck earlier this year through the launch of a successful branded History HD VOD service on MegaTV.” In addition to the new service on MegaTV, History HD programming is available via branded VOD services on all three IPTV platforms in Korea, including MegaTV, SK Broadband (formerly Hanaro) and LG.
