    Anybody know of a weekly or daily Japanes news program on any DirecTV channels? I'm having a coworker from Japan stay with me for a couple of months, so it would nice if I could find a regular Japanese news show. Thanks!

    I think you would probably need one of the extended international channel packages

    They didn't have it as of a few years ago. Had to get Dish for my mom just to get TVJapan, which is mostly Japanese NHK programs, though some are in English.

    Thanks guys. I was just wondering if any of the current channels provided any Japan-specific news. I think that News World International used to, but they were bought by Al Gore and turned into Current.

    There used to be that News International Channel before Current took over in it's place, but there's no japanese programming AFAIK atm on Directv even in the international packages. There are Asia programs but it's China and Korea stuff.

    I inquired about a year ago and they said it was coming in the summer or something last year but they never did get anything japanese tv wise. I would really like to watch some Japanese TV myself!

    Sadly, I haven't found any either. But there are a few news channel streaming to the web, so it's not that big of a deal.

    I listen to nhk online at work
