GlobeVISION forges IPTV distribution agreement with Korea's CGN TV


MUMBAI: The Los Angeles-headquartered digital media service provider GlobeVISION, Inc. has inked an agreement with CGN TV, Korea's largest Christian programming broadcaster, to carry content from the network on GlobeVISION's PIE Service, an on-demand Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) service for Asian-Americans and Asian-Canadians.

The deal will bring CGN TV's Christian-valued programs directly to Asian-Americans and Asian-Canadians throughout North America when GlobeVISION's PIE Service launches on 1 July.

The PIE service will launch with thousands of Korean titles ranging from moves to television series to news and sports. It will quickly expand to include programming from all over Asia including China and India, states an official release.

CGN TV is the latest in a string of high-profile content providers to jump onto the GlobeVISION bandwagon. Korea's two largest private broadcasters (MBC and SBS), largest cable media group (CJ Media) and top movie studio (CJ Entertainment) have signed deals positioning GlobeVISION and the powerhouse distribution channel for Korean content in North America, adds the release.

"We are pleased to be able to add these values-based programming options to GlobeVISION's already announced lineup of news, culture, sports and entertainment," said Edward Bach, founder and CEO/president of GlobeVISION. "GlobeVISION recognizes how important family and faith-based programming is, especially considering what a hot topic it has been in the U.S. lately."

The deal also forms a strategic marketing and promotion partnership to boost awareness of CGN TV's subscription satellite service. CGN TV's 24 hour satellite service currently beams Christian-themed programming, including culture, worship and educational programs into 123 countries.
