Korea Cable TV Changes This Weekend

The transition from Army and Family MWR cable TV service to LG U+ will take place on Sunday, 1 Nov.  The change is being made to comply with the Congressional National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and IMCOM ACSIM policy.

LG U+ will begin providing AFN at that time in the first phase of the transition.  All channels will be the same and no set top box will be required for on-base service. Viewers should make sure the coax is connected directly to their TV sets, and then re-scan the channels.  Off-base AFN viewers using satellite dishes are not affected by this transition and no actions are required.

Premium TV will be in a second phase.  MWR-provided basic and premium services will cease on 31 October, and there will be a gap in service until the launch of a new premium service from LG U+.  The Exchange and LG U+ have placed a very high priority on launching the new premium service, but are unable to provide more details at this time.

LG U+, which already serves the U.S. military community through Exchange contracts for high-speed internet and mobile communications, has plans to invest in technical infrastructure upgrades that will pave the way for future digital features.
