Arirang TV reshuffles its Program Lineup


Arirang TV reflected its preference of broadcasting contents per global zone and carried out a domestic and international program reorganization, with the purpose of making some prime time contents distinctive.

Newly appointed on June 21, ArirangTV's CEO Moon Jae-wan commented, "Arirang TV is going to celebrate its 20th Anniversary in upcoming February, followed by the reform of its unsettled atmosphere within the company and the successful launch of its channel on the U.K satellite platforms." He also added, "this reorganization is focused on 'expanding the news and current affairs programs' and increasing the quality of its contents as a step before the establishment of the 24-hour news system in 2017, and on adopting the government's policy of 'the expansion of K-Culture 4.0 K-Wave Spectrum.'

Additionally, he mentioned, "Arirang’s contents have a huge strongpoint with its English content in the world of new media. We are planning to make continuous investments to swiftly enlarge our alliance with global new media platforms and to lead ahead of other major international broadcasters in the new media market.

Arirang TV is currently providing its contents through the cooperation with 25 video platforms and 45 social media platforms, which have strong advantage in the global market. Under the company's social media expansion strategy, it also partnered with a North American company Tagboard and newly applied the hashtags(#) to the most popular programs; [#Stylecast], [#After School Club], and [#B-Cruze].
