Hello All:

Does anyone know what happened to the North Korean TV station 
Internet stream that the South Korean SPTV station 
(http://www.sptv.co.kr/) produced? The same stream now shows the 
South Korean station YTN instead:
mms://  (32-bit mode)
Same on my site:
http://koreaweb.ws/7_dprkTV.html  (any mode)

Doing a 'traceroute' from any country to that station at shows major connection problems (within Korea, EXCEPT 
for connections from Korean itself -- as you can see for yourself 
using this tool: http://www.wipmania.com/en/tools/ ).

You can still get it through satellite, Thaicom 5 
(http://www.lyngsat.com/tvchannels/kp/Korean-Central-TV.html) if you 
are in the area where its signal can be received: 
But not so easily on the Internet ... maybe through RRinternetTV, 
haven't tried.
