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.

Thanks for asking about international programming on DIRECTV. We offer several international channels on an a la carte basis. Over the course of the next several months, we expect to begin carrying international programming in Mandarin, Cantonese and Japanese.
Pricing for international programming varies but you can visit our web site at directv.com/international for more information. At DIRECTV.com, you'll also find details about minimum programming requirements and equipment needed to receive international programming.
Thanks again for writing and stay tuned to directv.com for the latest about our current international channels and news regarding new channels as they become available.
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!

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!

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.
