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.
