NHK World TV, the global news and information channel from Japan’s public broadcaster, is doubling the amount of VoD programming to reflect the significant increase in demand from viewers around the world.
The expansion includes new programmes – such as A Century on Film, Direct Talk and J-Trip Plan – as well as established ones, including Tokyo Fashion Express and Samurai Wheels.
In general, VoD programmes will be available for two to four weeks after broadcast, and are available either from the NHK World website or via an App on suitable ‘smart’ TVs.
The VoD active availability jumps from 13 to 27 programmes.
