Turner's top channels in Mongolia on Univision's IPTV platform.

HONG KONG - Turner Broad-casting System Asia Pacific has launched a suite of its top channels in Mongolia, after a ground-breaking agreement with the country's first IPTV operator, Univision.

The multi-year deal will see a mixed genre package of Turner's premium channels, CNN International, Cartoon Network, Boomerang and truTV, offered as part of Univision's triple-play service to its network covering Ulaanbaatar and other major cities, using high-speed fibreoptic technology.

Ringo Chan, senior vice-president of Wireless and Interactive Content Solutions and Distribution at Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific, said: "We're delighted to partner with the clear leader in its field, Univision, as it offers its subscribers access to Turner's line-up of unrivalled news programmes, top-rating children's programming and actuality entertainment."

Turner's expansion into Mongolia marks the seventh Asian market for truTV, the broadcaster's popular actuality channel, since its regional debut in April last year. The compelling must-see channel provides unscripted real-life situations about real people in dramatic situations, transporting viewers to the middle of the action. Programming highlights include The Smoking Gun Presents, World's Wildest Vacation Videos and Disorder in the Court.

Added CEO of Univision, Naranbat N: "It is a significant milestone for our subscribers to have access to Turner's top channels through Mongolia's first IPTV service."

The new IPTV service will also mean that Mongolian subscribers can stay on top of CNN's breaking-news stories and world headlines at all times; and enjoy the best in animated entertainment from the world's largest cartoon library of Warner Bros, MGM and Hanna Barbera titles as well as Cartoon Network's original series including popular favourites Ben 10, Generator Rex, Chowder, and The Powerpu? Girls.
