The OnDemandKorea: Watch Korean TV app brings Korean-language programming -- TV shows, news, documentaries, movies, music, and more -- to your smartphone.
A ton of content to choose from: From Korean comedies to dramas, news to variety shows, lifestyle programs to K-Pop music videos, and documentaries to movies, there is much to watch here, from public TV networks KBS, MBC, and SBS; cable TV networks JTBC and YTN; E&M (entertainment and media major) channels tvN, O'live, Story On, and Mnet; and religious programming provider CBS -- within hours of broadcast in Korea.
Great search and filtering options: There are so many ways to discover content within the app. You can search for shows by title or sort shows by genre, date, alphabetically, or by popularity.
Only Korean-language content: You can choose between English and Korean under settings to see menus and show titles in English, but the programming seems to be exclusively in Korean. We couldn't even find English subtitles, so if you're not fluent in the language, then the app might not be worth it for you.
A lot of content is locked behind a paywall: A lot of the OnDemandKorea content is locked behind a paywall, so you're encouraged to sign up for a premium ODK Plus account, which costs $6.99 per month or $59.99 per year via the OnDemandKorea.com website. This also removes ads.
The OnDemandKorea: Watch Korean TV app is a great service for Korean speakers, looking for the latest Korean TV shows and movies.
