ZILLY TALKZ: How To Register For Korean TV Network Accounts


At Mowee's request, I'm posting how to create "non-Korean" or "non-Resident" accounts for the Korean TV networks.  BTW, Mowee, did you know MBS has the world channel on Youtube for the non-Korean users?  Here's the link: 


1.  MBC

Here's how to create a "non-Korean" or "non-Resident" MBC account.  First go to http://member.imbc.com/user/join.html.  (Click on the image to see the full size version.)



Then you'll see the terms of service agreement; just scroll down and do as shown below.




Then the next page will ask you to enter your personal information.  Note that when you click on the second blank to enter your ID, a pop-up window will appear. Then enter your preferred ID in the blank.  If you have any kind of message when you click the confirmation button in purple, this means someone's already using the ID.  In that case, try a different ID.




Now, you'll see the following page that means you're done with this registration process.




When you go to the main page, you will see the button that reads 로그인 (log in). Click this button whenever you want to log in.



2.  KBS

Here's how to create a "non-Korean" or "non-Resident" KBS account.  First go to  https://sso.kbs.co.kr/SSO/KBSWeb/member/Select.aspx.  (Click on the image to see the full size version.)




KBS offers English instructions.



Then the next page will ask you to enter your personal information for identification check.  I recommend you to provide your passport number instead of social security number (SSN).  If you click on SSN, you'll get the following message:
Foreign membership valid proof of identification (passport, national identification card, driver's license) must be confirmed sign-up process of the submission is complete.
FAX to submit proof of identification to confirm the receipt and processing of an average week or so it may take time.
How to submit proof of identification to select FAX, and applying for membership within a week after the proof is not submitted by FAX to join will be canceled.



3.  SBS

Here's how to create a "non-Korean" or "non-Resident" SBS account.  First go to   https://sbscert.sbs.co.kr/login/member/join/agree.jsp.  (Click on the image to see the full size version.)



Then the terms of service agreement will appear; then click,



Then the next page will ask you to enter your personal information.  Note that when you enter your home phone number, enter your country code and area number in the first blank, then the first three digits of your phone number in the middle, then the last four digits in the third blank.  SBS requires you to send them the image of your identification card either by email or by fax.




Remember!  Always look for the button that reads 로그인 (log in) when you visit the network's main page. Click this button whenever you want to log in.  Good luck!
