France 24 has launched in South Korea

France 24 has entered South Korean media landscape thanks to a new distribution agreement recently concluded with Hyundai Cable Networks (HCN). The operator has 1.3 million TV subscribers across the country.


France 24 English version is now available on the channel 446 within the "Gold" package which brings together several foreign channels. In addition to this access via cable, the channel is also available on IPTV and mobile in the "Premium" offer.

With this first distribution agreement in South Korea, France 24 will also enhance its presence throughout the country with screens broadcasting the channel in the Alliances Françaises and at the Institut Français in Seoul (French cultural Institutes).

A few weeks before the 2015-2016 France-Korea year draws to an end (a France Médias Monde group partnership), France 24 will soon propose a special edition of its cultural magazine "Encore!" entirely dedicated to the Korean culture.
