Korea’s English-language radio station Arirang Radio will this week begin airing its programs in all U.S. areas, the company said Tuesday.

The English-language radio service will begin at midnight Thursday (U.S. eastern time) for listeners in all 50 U.S. states through SiriusXM Radio, America’s satellite radio company, said the Korea International Broadcasting Foundation, the operator of the Arirang radio station, in a statement.

The radio’s seven regular programs on Korean culture and tourism will become available for 11 hours a day on “Korea Today,” the 144th channel of SiriusXM, the company said.

SiriusXM broadcasts some 200 satellite radio channels to its 22.5 million paid subscribers.

“Korea Today will be the first channel whose programs comprise content from a specific Asian country,” the company said in the statement.
