NHK World has an Android app that allows users to view live TV. NHK World is a public broadcasting station similar to the BBC and it produces news and other features primarily related to Japan all day every day. I watch a lot of BBC and CNN personally and I was curious to see how similar or different NHK world was.
The android app is expectedly of a high standard. I’ve tested it out on my WIFI connection and other than the occasional buffering and blocked program due to copyright it functions perfectly. Check it out if you have an Android phone in the Play Store – NHK WORLD TV Live and let me know what you think via a comment below or tweet me @Jamaipanese.
