Manbang - the new North Korean Netflix
North Korea has launched its own version of Netflix called "Manbang"

Quote:Netflix style video-on-demand comes to North Korea, state TV shows

Netflix style video-on-demand services via quasi-internet protocol television (IPTV) have come to North Korea, state broadcaster the Korea Central Television (KCTV) showed on Tuesday.

A set-top box named ‘Manbang’, which means ‘everywhere’ or ‘every direction’, enables viewers to replay documentary films about the leadership and learn Russian and English languages, using IPTV services.

If true, the ‘Manbang’ represents a stunning development in domestic North Korean television technology, considering the highly limited availability of internet in the country.

I was hoping to order my set top box today, but alas, it's not yet available in my country.

Slightly disappointed this wasn't some new Roosh News Network.

I'm sure North Koreans are going to love The Interview.

Movie about North Korea - Check
Movie about the glorious leadership - Check
Movie that helps them to learn English - Check

Instant classic!

Makes perfect sense. I wonder if the title is shorthand for declaring your love for Kim Jong Un?

Well the internet should provide a limitless supply of quality content, subject to rigorous state approval of course.

If you don't rate every North Korean state television show 5 stars you and your family get sent to a prison camp.

They could also keep watch on how much time per day you are watching typical NK propaganda. Just dont go below the mean.

Of course they'll toss in an episode here or there with a subversive message to check if you're paying proper attention.

Give that one any more than one star? Prison camp.

I expected this would be about a Gawker blog.

RE: Manbang - the new North Korean Netflix
I laughed at this last night for a good 5 mins at least. Gave myself a headache in the process. The jokes just write themselves. I wonder if his father's favorite "Gone With the Wind" is in there? Probably has a 5 Star rating that is locked.

I bet there are a ton of videos about how great our leader is, like those 1960 and 70's Mao videos from China. Probably worse since he expects actual deity worship and it is in their laws.

Then, who in the hell is allowed to watch it? Do they strap a prison camp person to a chair and fire up a smart TV, with the APP, and subject them to watch videos of his fat ass nonstop, like they played Britney Spears' Oops I Did It Again nonstop at Guantanamo? If I recall right, those guys started going insane after a while and tried to smash their heads against stuff.

Are military officers allowed to watch it or can regular people watch it? What's the penalty for jailbreaking it to get porn? Is it already filled with porn for top officials to enjoy? I was not aware that anyone there outside of San Pangzi (Means the third fat one or 3Fat in Chinese and slang for Kim Jong Un), had any leisure time to do anything at all!

This is hilarious.
