KT poised to launch new broadcast satellite in Dec.
SEOUL, Oct. 20 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's telecom giant KT Corp. said Wednesday it will launch a new satellite in late December to brace for an expected rise in demand for high-definition satellite broadcasting service.

The broadcast satellite, named Mugunghwa-6 after South Korea's national flower, has recently completed tests and will be moved to its launching site in French Guiana in time for the Dec. 21 liftoff, the company said in a statement.
