Korean cable companies following Pivot's lead?

According to a report in the Korea Times, the Korean Cable TV Association said some of its members are planning on adding wireless services to their bundles by reselling handsets and services from existing carriers. The cable companies are looking to partner with SK Telecom, KTF and LG Telecom for the joint venture. The move should be a familiar one to the U.S. wireless and cable industries--Sprint inked deals with Comcast, Cox, Advance/Newhouse and Time Warner in a joint venture later marketed under the brand Pivot. The JV never really took off, however, and Sprint has slowly ramped down its involvement with the cable firms.
