korean tv!

Post by farkmedead » Jan 13th, '09, 01:40

hi everyone!
i just had some questions about korean tv that i hoped someone would be able to help clarify :)

um..i live in Australia and am going to get one of those big satellite things installed so i can watch tv from other countries, (mainly korea :P)

um i just wanted to know how the channels work, i know the 3 main channels are kbs mbc and sbs. is mnet a channel? because i mainly want to watch the music stuff since i dont really understand korean hehe.

so which channels should i be watching at what time for these music shows such as mnet countdown or just shows that broadcast music videos?

oh btw just to name the shows that i know of and want to watch:
M countDown At 7pm(Korean time)=thursdays
Music Bank at 6:30pm(korean Time)=Friday
Music Core At 3:20 pm (korean Time)=Saturday
Inkigayo at 3:20pm (korean time)=Sunday

i got the korean times off yahoo lol, are these times still correct? are they still running? and what channels do they air on??

thanks in advance!

Did you check if you can receive the footprint in Australia? Also did you check if they are encrypted or FTA? I'm in Europe and I can get quite a few channels from different country but only if they're FTA (unless you decrypt them illegally of course).

After for the difference in time, Korea and Japan are GMT+9, depending on which side you are in Australia it is GMT+9 to GMT+11

i live in sydney so its gmt+10, so since its daylight savings i think korea is 2 hours behind sydney.

but does anyone know which channels the shows listed above appear on?

Music Core -> MBC
Music Bank -> KBS
And I'm pretty sure Inkigayo is on SBS.
Honey, honey, honey...
