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)

Download: link

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/

[28 May2009 Update]

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.

@Danny: just had the time trying livestation.. it only has 2 japanese TV (which can’t be played as well :( )

Nice find, though I can’t understand nearly enough Japanese to really enjoy any of this stuff. Oh well, couldn’t hurt to have ^^;

This also reminds me of why I’m a PC user ;P

Wohoo awesome, now i can tune to japanese tv program XD

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.

great f ind……had to watch JTV troygh order on cable box…maybe i can cancel it ?

Nice find! Thanks for sharing this ^^ Now I can practice my Japanese and watch differents shows!

I was able to watch Music Station Super Live! :D (currently watching, actually :P )

doesn’t work AT ALL.

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..

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.

yeah, seems like it’s down.

can use this for alternative: http://tvants.en.softonic.com/

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.

keyhole tv for Japanese tv is ok but screen is too small, try the MMS (Windows media player) links – much better quality.
