    Hi

    I would like to watch a show on NHK (Japanese TV) from Boston. I don't think NHK World is the correct one. It should be NHK.

    Does anyone know how to get access to NHK live streams or broadcasts here in Boston?

    Thanks

    There is (or was, haven't checked) an NHK app for iOS - NHK World.

    Pretty limited, you get to see what's on the air now, and much of the time nothing is shown due to copyright, plus it's the World feed.

    I would also like to stream Japanese TV, but I haven't been successful in finding any decent sources.

    Check with your cable provider for "TV Japan". It's mostly NHK broadcasts. It can get pretty expensive though ($20/mo IIRC).

    Also, check with D-Addicts as you maybe able to download the show from there.

    What show in particular are you looking for?

    it is about a book author and I'm part of the video. I know pure vanity. I got the show now as DVD. Honestly, don't know how it's called but I got told when I did air and wanted to record it. I'm still surprised that NHK has such a limited internet presence. I expected them to be completely online.

    I see no real evidence of any free internet streaming of *any* TV from Japan, I've heard the corporate types over there have too much concern for property rights to get into it.

    (NHK World excepted - talking about domestic TV)

    There are 3rd party (read: illegal) websites that stream multiple live channels (think youku.com but live) from Japan. You just have to find them.
