NHK WORLD TV Starts Video on Demand

NHK WORLD TV, NHK’s international TV service in English, will launch a Video on Demand (VOD) service on its website on Monday, June 15th, in response to requests from global viewers for opportunities to see programs again and to reinforce the global provision of programs from Japan.

The service is available free of charge both in Japan and overseas. The service will start with 13 programs mainly transmitted within the past one week or two as a way to catch up with programs viewers may have missed. Major debate programs and travel programs containing useful information for visitors to Japan will stay for longer periods.

The VOD line-up of programs will steadily be expanded, considering the site access and user requests, along with clearance of their intellectual property rights.
