Koreans celebrate "IPTV Day"

One of the ingredients in South Korea's emergence as a global broadband leader has been a government-steered national focus on promoting new technology. With that in mind, the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) declared December 12 to be IPTV Day. The date was chosen because it is the one-year anniversary of the launch of linear IPTV service.

It may not exactly sound like Mardi Gras, but perhaps young IPTV markets like the U.S. could use such a promotional push to make sure there is continued energy and focus on IPTV innovations. Maybe our own Federal Communications Commission could do something similar--though the FCC may have one or two other priorities on its mind these days.

Anyway, Happy IPTV Day, Korea!
