This has been something that I've had trouble with to no end. Is there a way/place to watch some live Japanese TV? And yes I know there's a ton of Youtube videos. No, I'm not going to move to japan. But I'd like to throw some channel on in the background and not have to worry about it. Preferably in Japanese.

My mom uses pandora.tv and some other site (but I don't remember the name).

Satellite or cable providers should have some sort of Japanese tv station, but it's unlikely to be a ala cart thing and more included with some useless amount of channels package. Or your other option would to fly to Japan and watch tv, but that might get expensive lol.

NHK World (in English):
http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/

They do news at the top of the hour, then various cultural shows when the news is over. There's a lot of cool programming! http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/tv/genre/ It's not Japanese TV for people in Japan, but stuff about Japan geared towards an international audience. You can watch on the internet using a web browser or on a mobile device, and there's an "unlisted" Roku channel too.

Does your cable provider offer TVJHD?
