ArirangTV launches VOD app on Samsung Smart TV

Korean international channel ArirangTV has launched a video-on-demand application on Samsung’s Smart TV platform – the first such service to be launched by the broadcaster.

The Arirang app will offer a range of entertainment, culture and current affairs programming on-demand, with subtitling provided in up to six languages for K-Pop programmes.

The app is available for the first three weeks via Samsung’s newly launched Smart Hub, meaning that users will find it listed automatically when they update their TV. After the initial promotional period it will be available to download from the Samsung Smart TV app store free of charge.

Arirang Radio is also available via the app.
