Another enhancement that will please fans of Korean drama series is the fact that KBS World is now available in HD, and ONE HD will be available with both English and Chinese subtitles from 17 September.

Based on feedback from customers, the mio TV channels have been repackaged to ensure that customers get the best possible value with a mix of great content and significant savings.

Letters with important information on channel renumbering and these new packages will be sent by mail to all existing customers by 18 September.
