Has anyone heard if Directv will be carrying the new Japanese channel Ronin TV?
Japanese channels only exclusive to other competitor. Home to TV Japan.
comprehendeth thou the term Ronin?
If DirecTV doesn't have TV Japan, no Ronin! Notice how far is Japan to 95° Satellite. China looks close.
Ronin, a dishonored, lordless Samurai. Ronin TV would be an insult to Japan. (Joke)
Pointless thread, Wake me up in a few years when DirecTV pushes a satellite that is able to get some programming from Japan.
I get it on my slingbox that is connected to the receiver at my parent's place in Tokyo. Doubt you will see it on DirecTV.
Why do you doubt it? I spoke to the TV Japan people in NY, and they would love to be carried by D*. There is no exclusivity, apparently. And, it is entirely up to D*. (I have no idea about RoninTV. Never heard of it.) Perhaps, with enough emails requesting it, they would consider adding it. They certainly have plenty of potential bandwidth now.
BTW - I, too, have a Slingbox setup in Japan, at my MIL's house in Osaka. It's hooked up to a brand new Panasonic DMR-XP12 DVR. All the free OTA and BS/CS sat channels. It's on a fiber ISP, so the PQ is pretty good. I'm looking forward to SlingMedia's Slingcatcher, so we can watch right on the TV with no PC required.
