Well right now lags are VERY heavy. The audio shows like 10 seconds later than the video at some channels. Probably because it's like, 11 PM in Japan now so there are a lot of gameshows so a lot of people are watching.
400 people are watching Terebi Asahi right now! There's a game show on. It's even more popular than baseball on Fuji Terebi.
still lots of lags though
I hope they upgrade the software soon.
ooooh it will be awesome if I get to see Ayumi's Asia Tour 2008 when it airs live in November!! or maybe her Countdown Live at New Year's eve! or some kind of Music Station performance of Hikki! I wanna see that live >__< but I don't know what channels those shows are on lol.
oh it would be PERFECT if I could watch Kouhaku Uta Gassen! That airs on the 31th of December at night (so in the afternoon here! and in the morning in the US). It's the most-watched, most prestigious music show of the year, and it features a lot of popular artists. The female team (red team) will take it up against the male team (white team).
I don't know what they're gonna do exactly, but it's been a tradition for decades. viewing rates are HUGE since it's common for Japanese families to celebrate new year in front of the TV. (that's also very common here by the way, they aired madonna's Confessions tour last year here).
Some of the artists for Uta Gassen 2008:
white team: arashi, EXILE, GLAY, SMAP, Bz's, Porno Grafity, Mr Children.
red team: AI, Aoyama Thelma, Ai Otsuka, Ayumi Hamasaki, GIRLS NEXT DOOR, perfume, koda kumi, Morning musume, namie amuro.
I'll be so excited if I could watch that live >__<
