SEOUL, Sept. 1 (Yonhap) -- Yonhap News TV has remained the most-watched cable news channel in South Korea for the 13th straight month, Nielsen data showed Thursday.

The Yonhap News Agency-affiliated cable TV channel posted an average viewership of 0.709 percent last month, the sixth highest of all paid platforms in the country, according to data from Nielson Korea.

Yonhap TV has been the top-watched news channel since August last year, beating its local competitor YTN.

The channel's balanced and in-depth coverage of various issues is believed to be the main factor for the soaring viewership, company officials said, adding that the channel is soon expected to hit a major landmark in weekly viewership by staying on top for the 50th consecutive week.

"We will live up to viewers' expectations with a more accurate and high-class news service," a company official said.
