CJ E&M has announced it is introducing the first overseas television channel to exclusively air Korean movies and will broadcast some 200 films – including over 20 recent releases – encompassing all genres.
The ROK media giant had signed a contract with StarHub, the largest telecom service provider and private broadcaster in Singapore, and began delivering tvN Movies to over 540,000 households earlier this year.
CJ E&M is currently in contact with cable channels and Internet Protocol TV companies in Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia and Hong Kong.
Our goal is to make CJ E&M rank among the top 10 culture content companies in the world by 2020, said the company’s Chief Executive Kim Sung-su.
CJ E&M has been laying the groundwork for its expansion in Asia over recent years. In December last year, it acquired Vietnamese content company Blue Group and debuted CJ Blue Corp.
