Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. KTSF 26.3 is an all-Korean language channel, a time shifted transmission of the KBS America satellite feed (produced by KBS, one of South Korea's 2-major television networks). Regarding the E/I symbol - KBS America (KTSF Ch. 26.3) does not have English language graphic insertion capability. Further, KBS America suggest that, since the Korean language does not use Roman alphabet characters and, since their programming targets a Korean speaking audience, the E/I symbol will not make sense to their viewers. KTSF 26.4 content is produced in China and transmitted via satellite. Most of the programming is either dubbed or subtitled in English. KTSF 26.5 (Vietoday) is an all-Vietnamese language channel. With respect to item 14 - program schedule information for the Korean channel (26.3), the Chinese/English channel (26.4), and the Vietnamese channel (26.5) is made available to KTSF 1-3 weeks in advance of broadcast. Therefore, we are unable to provide advance descriptions of next quarter's core programming for these channels.
