Re: NOTICE: UTB 18.2 TO GO OFF THE AIR EFFECTIVE 9/3/16


You are very welcome, Peggy! I, too, am happy that UTB will continue their tradition of airing this program. Here is UTB's listing of all the artists who will be performing. I haven't watched the shows in their entirety in a while, since I am not a big fan of all the newer performers. However, I do tune in for the excerpts of the classic entertainers!

    I finally yesterday had a chance to check my DirecTV schedule and I found that they had updated the listing for Dec. 31st and that it now has the NHK Kouhaku Red & White Song Festival.

Re: NOTICE: UTB 18.2 TO GO OFF THE AIR EFFECTIVE 9/3/16


Starting April 2, 2017, UTB is expanding their schedule to include two dramas:

6:00 - 6:55: Taiga drama (Naotora: The Lady Warrior)

6:55 - 7:00: SoCal Japan

7:00 - 8:00: Contemporary drama (Hanasaki Mai 2; when that finishes airing in May, Partners 15 will begin!)

A helpful chart is available on UTB's website.

Re: How Bad is it going to get now!


     I just read a story at the LA Times this a.m. that KCSI is canceling its international format as of this week! does anyone have any further information. Does this mean no more Korean or Japanese Dramas this week forward?

 http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-channel-18-closure-20170701-story.html

     I was just starting to understand Band of Sisters after having missed the first episodes.

Re: UPDATES ABOUT UTB


I have no idea and this is the first time I'm hearing about it, TomCat. Perhaps KSCI is simply going to be canceling their own, original programming that they film and produce themselves, such as news or talk shows. They may continue to broadcast programming blocks they purchase from other networks, such as UTB, SBS, MBC, etc.

My guess is that if UTB was going to lose its outlet to air programming, we would have heard about it from them by now.

Re:


According to the Wikipedia
"On June 22, 2017, KSCI announced that they will canceled all of its programming in Chinese, Filipino, Spanish and Armenian and will replaced with English-language infomercials beginning July 1, the subchannels of the station will continued to air its programs in Chinese and Armenian as a result of the station's programming cutbacks, the station also announced they will reduced its Korean programming from 8 to 11 p.m. and they will cut its subchannels list from 12 to 5 next year."

Plus KOCE is getting some of their spectrum space.
"On April 13, 2017, KOCE-TV announced it had sold its over-the-air spectrum in the FCC's spectrum reallocation auction, reaping $49 million, which the station said it would use to invest in programming and other services. As a result of its spectrum sale, KOCE-TV will move into a channel sharing arrangement with multicultural independent station KSCI at a date to be determined."

And when you go to their website it shows a 404 error code.

Re: UPDATES ABOUT UTB


Well, it is definitely the end of an era. KSCI/LA-18 has been around for years, and without it, this forum may have never existed. I suspect it was a difficult decision but perhaps the current operation was not financially sustainable anymore.

At least it sounds like UTB's programming bloc (Sundays from 6;00p to 8:00p) will remain as is for the foreseeable future. That's comforting to know!
