KBS World will use Arabsat, a satellite which covers the Middle East, to promote the spread of Korean pop culture throughout the Arab world.

The overseas satellite arm of Korean Broadcasting System said Friday that service will start Monday to about 20 million households in 22 Middle Eastern countries.

The launch will provide easier access to Korean programs for Arabs and ethnic Korean residents in the region.

For more than 10 hours a day, KBS World broadcasts English-subtitled programs from KBS 1 and 2 via satellite for people of Korean descent abroad and foreigners.
