HistoryEdit

TVING was launched on May 31, 2010, by CJ HelloVision.[4] In January 2016, the service was transferred to CJ E&M.[5] On September 17, 2019, CJ E&M and JTBC signed an MOU to establish a joint venture company to operate the service.[6] On October 1, 2020, the joint venture company was launched as TVING Corporation and Yang Ji-eul became the first CEO of the entity.[7] On April 29, 2021, TVING announced that it would no longer provide real-time TV channels for free with paid subscription needed in order to view the content moving forward.[8] On June 30, 2021, it was announced that Naver has invested 40 billion into TVING Corporation, making Naver the second largest shareholders at 15% after CJ E&M.[9][10]

During the TVING Connect online event, they're planned to launch the service in Japan & Taiwan by 2022. TVING has also currently on further discussion with Naver subsidiary, Line Corporation, for launching the platform in other Asian countries as well. TVING may also planned to launch on America & Europe in the near future.[11]

In early December 2021, CJ ENM has partnered with ViacomCBS to launch Paramount+ as exclusive bundle with TVING by early 2022. They also unveiled to co-produce K-drama from both Studio Dragon and Paramount Television Studios.[12]
