Over 100 million households now watch Arirang TV around the world. The Seoul-based English-language broadcaster said it has achieved the feat 15 years after it first aired programmes for foreign residents in Korea in February 1997.
The station first began its overseas services in 13 countries in the Asia-Pacific region in August 1999. Its global base of viewers has since expanded from 7 million to over 100 million in 188 countries.
Arirang TV is most popular in Europe (37.54 million households), followed by the US (32.38 million), Asia (19.41 million), and the Middle East and Africa (14.34 million combined).
