Slogan: Pioneer in Asian Programming

Established on March 24, 1986, the channel remains as one of two television stations in Hawaii that host Asian content, KIKU @ Channel 20 is the other one. Its predominantly Korean programming caters to the needs of Korean audiences and most of its content is acquired from SBS, Korean Broadcasting System and Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation. The channel also offers English subtitles for the Asian programming due to growing interest among non-Asian viewers for its dose of K-Pop, dramas and other entertainment stuff. It also has exclusive rights to the home video distribution of Korean shows and specials.

The channel also borrows content from KBS World and also operates a Korean lifestyle programming service, KLife. It remains as one the few television stations in the City of Honolulu that sign off midnight. The signing on and off begins and ends with National Anthems of US and South Korea.

The transition from Analog to digital was made by Channel 32 on Jan 15, 2009.
