AH Logo (1973-84): KBS TV for the Korean SAR

In a world where Israel had taken over parts of Asia, let's get over to this.

When the television market rose, the Israeli Government besides this, wanted to also establish a TV station in the Korean region, as a movement to make sure all of Israel has Television/mainstream media access.

Back then, Israel only allowed IBA to dominate the TV market. The same thing in the Special Autonomous Regions, IBA had to dominate Korea's media.

KBS was established around the 60s, however in 1973 a IBA logo was used in the rebrand, to show that KBS is under IBA authority in the Korean Special Administrative Region even though it is showing itself as a nation within Israel.

Color broadcasting was introduced into the Korean SAR in 1976 which is interesting to the Israeli TV market. Here is something: Tongyang Broadcasting Company was allowed to be in the KSAR, however it was still absorbed by KBS in the 80s.

By 1983 (a couple years prior to Judea and the Middle East region's allowance to run any Israeli channel without IBA, which freed Channel 2 Israel from IBA jurisdiction in the 1990s), the Israeli Government wanted to open more media into the Korean Special Administrative Region and ends Israeli control over the Korean media.

KBS was free from IBA jurisdiction shortly after, and got a new logo in 1984 (which is the same as our real-world one). However, this would cause late establishment to MBC, and other Korean TV stations. But in this scenario, the 1990 Knesset law had also inspired the KSAR law, which also gave Israel more TV channels and the creation of Israel's Arutz Hop! in 2000. However, HOP! is available to all of Israel (incl. Korea), but we'll save this for another time.

For this, the current Israeli Broadcasting Authority logo was used. It was a minor modification to the 1973-84 KBS logo.

One big thing:

The KSAR and Israel paved the way for the establishment of commercial television in the entire region. This also allowed Korea to get more channels and yeah...

"enhance pluralism and create competition"
