Hungary - RTLKlub is the Hungarian broadcaster for

The name of the broadcaster in Denmark is still unknown.
KBS 2 South Korea has concluded its run of Doctor Who episodes for the time being. It's replacement in the Sunday 11:15PM time period - Desperate Housewives.

Also, some NTL cable subscribers have a new On Demand service where
shows on selected channels are available to watch whenever you want
for a week. One of those channels is BBC Three, Doctor Who repeats
and all. Telewest Broadband is launching a similar service. Whether
that service will cover Doctor Who has yet to be confirmed.
The Media Guardian,7493,1530847,00.html
(subscription required to read story) reports that the BBC is
considering selling programs over the internet to non-UK residents.
They may also offer advertising on their website for non-UK readers.
No guarantee that this would include Doctor Who, of course.
British Midland is another airline airing the new Doctor Who on its
flights. Unknown which episode is airing right now.
First Great Western Railway's Volo TV is
offering TV shows to watch on the train. Doctor Who is listed among
the shows. Other shows are The Prisoner, The Persuaders, and shows
of a similar vintage, so this could be episodes of the 1963 to 1989
run. If you're on a Great Western train, you could be the first to
find out.
The BBC Press Office and C21 Media often announce when a Doctor Who
international sale occurs. Worth keeping an eye on, just in case.
