South Korean regulators, the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) and the Korean Broadcasting Commission (KBC) are in two minds over the provision of IP-based television services in the country. The KBC announced plans to begin trial services last week, and hopes to develop a separate regulatory framework for the technology, but the MIC opposes the introduction of broadcasting over the internet, saying that it will disrupt the traditional boundaries between broadcasting and telecommunications. It wants Web TV to be considered as an extension of telecommunications.
