Zach, don't you have the official word that all international programming is going to 118? I thought it was official...
Are you sure it's free 100% of the time? It has always been free for some shows, including the news. If it's full-time free, wth am I paying $25?!!!!I do believe Atlanta comcast where he is apparently carries it, according to the JVJapan site. Looks like $30. I'm guessing he's just not happy with Dish because we still get TVJapan on 61.5, in fact it has been free for awhile, not just the free news.
The part-time OTA stuff isn't the same as 24-hour full-time Japanese programming from NHK. But, it is a nice icing on the turkey.Dish Network and most cable companies carry TV Japan for $25 a month. It is a set price and it is fairly expensive for 1 channel at $25. If you live in the populated Japanese cities like Los Angeles, New York, Hawaii, you can get cheaper or free local Japanese programming OTA. You can always depend on the local video stores to rent the latest drama series, shows and movies if there is one.
It sure would!!!!!!!! (!!!!) All of NHK's programming is produced in HD, or as the Japanese call it, "Hi-Vision". I put in a request for it. (It's available on TW Cable in NY/NJ) But, I'm not holding my breath.MegaHurtz World on many public TV OTA multi-plex does carry a fair amount of TVJapan (NHK) programming, and in HD!--at least HD on the MAIN public TV channel if they play some TVJapan content on their as well.
I know Dish has bandwidth issues, especially on 118, but offering this channel in HD would make a splash.
Since when? I've never seen this mentioned anywhere. What is the channel number? And, when you say "J-League", are you referring to Baseball, or Soccer and Rugby?As well, I do feel bad to tansu, because if he doesn't have LOS to 118.7, Dish Network actually has another channel included with TV Japan, and it's ONE World Sports, which has exclusive rights to the Japanese J-League. No other cable provider has ONE World Sports.
Are you sure it's free 100% of the time? It has always been free for some shows, including the news. If it's full-time free, wth am I paying $25?!!!!
