PostSubject: North Korea TV (KCTV) Live Stream   Sun Jul 28, 2013 2:40 am

North Korea KCTV live stream

ArrowNon-working links will be marked as offline. Go to the latest update in this post for current working KCTV links.  The non-working link info will remain here for archival purposes.


For most of the day — when the stream is available*— it relays standard color bars but these switch to the KCTV testcard at around 16:30 Pyongyang time.
You can currently find the feed here: http: // 112.170.78.145:50000/chosun (currently offline) Try clicking on it, but it’s best and easiest viewed in VLC Media Player. Choose “Open network stream,” paste that address in and it should appear if available.

source northkoreatech.org/2011/12/08/north-korean-tv-currently-live-streaming/

* KCTV weekday broadcast schedule is about 0800-1430GMT
( 3:00am-9:30am eastern time USA - DST is 1hr earlier)
Weekend schedule 0000-1500GMT
( Sat-Sun 7:00pm-10:00am eastern USA - DST is 1hr earlier)


Yet another link to the KCTV live stream(direct):
mms: // 112.170.78.145/chosun (currently offline)
Via  
http://www.kfausa.org/korean-central-television  ( many kctv video clips)
Live stream page http: // www dprkfriendship.com.mx/on-air/ (currently offline)


 
(Update: August 2014) - The direct link ( mms // 112.170.78.145/chosun ) to the KCTV live stream is not working again - this has happened before, being offline for months and it has returned, so keep checking. (Found new direct link - see link at bottom of post. )

The live stream webpage ( www dprkfriendship.com.mx/on-air/ ) is still offline.

When / if it comes back online, this post will be updated.

Use one of the still working Elufa links below, although they periodically interrupt the stream to play ads.
  


Also, there is a KCTV live stream on this website: http://www.elufa-tv.net/live.html , although the website makes you choose advertisements to watch.
It is an imbed from Ustream. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/dprk-tv


 
(Update March 2016)
The above elufa link working again.

Thanks to our friends who found new information mentioned in following posts,  the new direct link to the KCTV stream is:

Arrow mms://121.167.43.161/chosun

Don't know - even the KFA site stream is not working. I guess just use the one of the elufa links for now. The direct live stream link has previously gone offline for months and then come back, so keep checking. If I find any other sources I will post them.

Thanks for keeping us updated about the links.

Unfortunately, my computer has been messed up for a while and my flash won't download so I can't see if those links work or not. I've been working on it, the MS techs say I may have to do an OS reinstall. Ugh.

If past history is any indication, the streams may start working again at some point - they are known to be offline for months and then come back online eventually.

OK thanks for the info.  I went to that link you posted,  http://sptv.co.kr/ , and as you say the 2nd link down ( 평양방송 ) appears to be streaming KCTV.

I looked at the source and the new direct link for the KCTV stream is  mms://121.167.43.161/chosun
It's just showing color bars now (5pm EST, or 2200GMT), as would be expected between the broadcast day schedules.

2 thumbs up

How to stream DPRK TV.

Documentaries and stuff:
Internet based devices PC, tablet, phone, console, etc:
http://original.livestream.com/channelnk [Requires Adobe Flash]

KCTV (Live News Channel):
Internet based devices PC, tablet, phone, console, etc:
* Can be slow or choppy:
http://121.167.43.161:50000/chosun
rtsp://121.167.43.161/chosun
mms://121.167.43.161/chosun
http://112.170.78.145:50000/chosun (May not work)
* Not always working or timing is off:
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/dprk-tv [Requires Adobe Flash]
* Possibly Malware (Unification broadcasting):
http://sptv.co.kr/ [Requires some weird mx player plugin]

Programs to stream with:
* VLC Media Player (Free & works on PC and Mobile):
https://www.videolan.org/vlc/
* Kodi/XBMC (Free & works on PC and Android):
http://kodi.tv/
* Windows Media Player (mms stream only & only for Windows):
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/download-windows-media-player

Satellite (Works great):
[Requires a satellite dish and a special receiver that lets you manually tune to satellite channels]
* Eastern World: Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia, etc:
Thaicom 5 3696 H, SR 3367, FEC 2/3
Track satellite location: http://www.n2yo.com/?s=29163
* Western World: Americas, Western Europe, etc:
Intelsat 21 3840 V, SR 27690, FEC 7/8
Track satellite location: http://www.n2yo.com/?s=38749

Over the air (DPRK only or might get it in ROK near DMZ)
* Analog: Channel 3 (55.25-MHz)
* Digital: (They broadcast digitally now but I do not know the the digital frequency or channel number if they do this over the TV transmission antennas now)?

Also worth mentioning. The IP 121.167.43.161 is a ROK (South Korea) based IP and could be "seized" by the KCSC.

It still works for me - but it is showing color bars now, as it does between broadcast hours.
Here is the direct stream URL:
mms://121.167.43.161/chosun

And you can find it on http://sptv.co.kr/
In the scroll box on the right, it's the 2nd link down ( 평양방송 ). click on that.

Expect the color bars between live broadcasting.

I would be very cautious with that "http://sptv.co.kr/" link as I got several warnings that the site is not safe from multiple extensions.
Google Chrome flagged it as Malware and Netcraft gave it a 7/10 risk rating.

http://toolbar.netcraft.com/site_report?url=http://sptv.co.kr
I checked it with IE and they have no reported problems. I checked with Norton, same thing.
Google Chrome does have a warning, but checking with Google Safe Browsing Diagnostic give this message:
"Some pages on this website send visitors to the following dangerous websites: 61.209.205.0. "
(which links to this URL: https://www.google.com/transparencyreport/safebrowsing/diagnostic/index.html#url=sptv.co.kr )
but when Google then analyzes the link it says is dangerous, it says it is not dangerous:
"Current status: Not dangerous Safe Browsing has not recently seen malicious content on 61.209.205.0."
https://www.google.com/transparencyreport/safebrowsing/diagnostic/?#url=61.209.205.0

I have never had a problem with SPTV, it's been around for a long time, but I suppose better safe than sorry.

Just view KCTV with the live link: mms://121.167.43.161/chosun
Or, watch it on that ustream channel when available, but you will be forced to watch ustream ads occasionally:

I have a question.....

Will there be an HD or high quality stream of KCTV anytime soon? The channel has an HD feed since 2015 (There are 2 video recordings of this, the only thing that is widescreen is the News Anchor and some other stuff but the quality is visibly higher) and the live links are of 260p or 360p VHS quality, and the Ustream channels only show the news and some stuff.

And what channel is this? All of the stuff is in English and seems to be playing mostly documentaries.
http://original.livestream.com/channelnk

Will there be any streams of the three other stations in DPRK?
Mansudae Television
Ryongnamsan Television
Sport Television
