Chinese and Asian content includes Korean dramas such as Goblin, The King In Love and Master’s Sun; Japanese dramas including Lady Girls; Chinese variety shows including Running Man China and Keep Running; and in-house variety shows such as Car-aoke Talent, Lady Commander Plus and Travel Cheering Squad.

The service will also carry Chinese movies such as Love Off The Cuff (pictured), See You Tomorrow, S Storm and Line Walker.
