Kocowa offers US audiences instant access to the Korean TV programmes from three Korean broadcasters, KBS, MBC and SBS, ranging from TV series, variety shows and music videos.
Programmes are being made available to US audiences with translations in up to six hours after being broadcast in Korea. To provide Korean programs almost simultaneously in the US market, the company is working with a certified translation team that immediately translates the programmes into English when the programmes run in Korea.
Kocowa is available on a variety of platforms including PC, mobile and tablet. Later this year, the video service will also be available to stream on Smart TVs.
“We are thrilled to bring the best of Korean TV to US audiences with Kocowa,” said Junsik Kim, CEO of KCP.
“Korean pop stars, such as PSY and BTS, have captured global audiences, forging interest in discovering more Korean stars and TV programs. Kocowa offers a single destination to discover the best of all types of Korean TV programs, from drama to variety. We not only offer the best of Korean TV, we also offer it very fast, with very high-quality translations. The programs become available in the U.S. within hours after airing in Korea.”
Kocowa makes its streaming service accessible for all audiences through multiple subscription options that include daily, monthly, annual and advertising-based plans. The daily plan, priced at $0.99 per day, offers full access to all content for one day, without any ads.
Kocowa starts with three subscription options – daily (for $0.99), monthly ($6.99) and annual ($69.99). These subscription options offer uninterrupted viewing without advertisements; the monthly and annual options also include a month-long free trial. For audiences who want to have access to content for free, Kocowa also offers an advertising-based option, which enables access to content within 24 hours of release.
