About KCP

One platform for the best Korean TV

The Korea Content Platform (KCP) is a joint venture between the three major Korean Broadcast Networks –KBS, MBC, and SBS.

Early on the founders of KCP saw the international distribution potential of Korean television content, and quickly mobilized to deliver this to global audiences through its streaming platform, KOCOWA. By partnering with the best in the industry, the platform is able to provide its audience with fully subtitled content the same day it airs in Korea. KCP was created to directly distribute the best Korean TV content direct-to-consumer, to multichannel video providers, and OTT streaming distributors in the Americas and eventually worldwide.

KCP is an American entertainment company founded on November 22, 2016, in Los Angeles, California.
