Chinese audiences will now be able to watch KBS TV programs in real time.

KBS President Jung Yun-joo said in a news conference Friday in Beijing that China has joined the United States, Japan, India, and South American countries in enjoying access to KBS WORLD programming. With the addition of China, he noted that some 38 million households in 49 countries can now tune into real-time KBS news programs and dramas.

Jung added that KBS WORLD has begun providing programs around the clock through Chinese satellite relay service Sinosat in leading hotels and regions with a high foreigner population.

With the programming arrangement, some four million Koreans who travel to China as well as some 700-thousand Koreans residing there will be able to get the latest news from their home country.

Currently, there are 34 foreign broadcasters, including the BBC, CNN and NHK, that have entered China through Sinosat. The airing of programming by these broadcasters is restricted for the general Chinese public.
