Streaming Live Japanese TV for Free

Just found out this cool application that allows you watch Japanese Live TV for free, thought to share with you all 🙂

List of available channel (may change) :
Swiss TV SF2
CNBC
ABC Radio 1008 Osaka
TV Asahi
TBS
TVK
MBS Radio 1179 Osaka
RF Radio Japan AM1422
TV Tokyo
Nihon TV
Fuji TV

The quality is a lil bit low (youtube quality), but all are streamed real-time. and yes it’s legal 🙂

The application is only for Windows, so Mac users (including me..) have to use bootcamp to view it. (New version supports mac, windows, and linux)

Seems like the streaming site has stopped working, but I found another application to watch Japanese TV, download the program from: http://tvants.en.softonic.com/

The site is back up, you can download the client again. This time they have windows, mac, and linux version. Thanks Satoshi for letting me know.

  1. If only they had NHK on the list. ;-(

    In any event, it seems to run fine under Parallels Desktop. So if you don’t feel like rebooting, the various virtual PC programs should be okay.

  2. anyone know how to find times and show for anime on the mentioned tv stations above??

    And below [LOL]

  3. i’ve been watching it for weeks now,
    but now that their server is down for fixing (22 Feb 2009), even their webpage is not working at the moment..
    I hope it comes back tomorrow, 2 days without my beloved jp tv is long enough..

  4. it’s not working =(

    you say it’s down for maintenance? well….it’s 4/10/09 now so I dunno if it’s still down for maintenance.

  5. Actually, the site isn’t down and the program is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Just go here: http://www.v2p.jp/video/Viewer/ , select your platform and then click the installer link and that’s it. Probably the reason to be down it’s because they’ve launched a new version and took out the old one from the server and the site.
