    Does Directv offer any Japanese Channels?

    I was looking on their website and they have a bunch of tiered packages like for south asia(korea), italian, etc, but none for Japanese.

    Dish has Japan TV (NHK). My wife had dish for only that one channel at $30 per month. She loved it so it was worth the money. Eveything else we got on D.

    I got this reply from Directv today:

    There's no way I would switch to Dish. It doesn't look like Directv would charge me to upgrade my dish outside so I can't wait to get some tv from Japan!

    Wow good timing to find this post. Just yesterday it occured to me how it makes no sense that D* doesn't offer any Japanese channels.

    I can't understand a lick of the language, but I'm somehow still completely enamoured with their programming. As of now, pretty much the only place I get to see it is snippets on tvinjapan.com.

    I certainly would be interested in paying an extra $5 a month for ala carte Japanese networks! Of course, I'd have to climb up to the top of my 3 story house to install a new 3 LNB dish, but it will be worth it!

    yeah something that kinda had me back and forth... I wanted Dish for Tv Japan but I wanted Direct TV for XM since I have an XM sub for my car.

    I went with Direct TV but I hope sometime soon they allow for TV Japan.. I mean someone has to notice this...

    I would gladly pay the $25 or $30 extra a month for it.
