wavve Americas, a joint venture between the Korean broadcasters KBS, MBC and SBS along with SK Telecom, has made its streamer KOCOWA available via Prime Video Channels in the U.S.

KOCOWA gives U.S. Prime Video Channels customers access to thousands of K-drama, K-pop, K-variety and library titles, including Young Lady and Gentleman, Moonshine, seasons one through three of The Penthouse, Dali and Cocky Prince, Music Bank K-Chart, Home Alone and more. Customers will be able to watch select shows the same day they air in Korea via KOCOWA as well.

The Korean content streamer channel can be accessed for $6.99 a month.

“Korean content has become so much more mainstream recently, and we are excited to offer Korea’s fresh storytelling with our diverse programming package on such an influential, global streaming service like Prime Video through Prime Video Channels,” said KunHee Park, CEO of wavve Americas. “As a niche streaming service with broad reach, KOCOWA is well-positioned to be competitive in the battle among streaming services by super-serving fans of Korean-produced content. It will now be even easier for viewers to watch new shows coming out of Korea at home, fully subtitled in English. I am happy that viewers will be able to discover us and enjoy Korea’s world-renowned brand of entertainment.”
