I just discovered a little program called KeyHole TV, which allows you to stream a few Japanese TV stations right into your PC! It has some well known channels like Fuji TV, Nippon (or Nihon?) Terebi, Terebi Asahi, Terebi Tokyo and more.

It's VERY convenient for everyone out there who wants to practice Japanese by watching real TV, straight from Japan, instead of anime or something.

I just downloaded it yesterday, and I'm loving it already xD I can't believe I just watched a live J-drama xD

oh they also have a channel called "Chu Channel" but it's password protected >__> I wonder what kind of channel thát is.. *cough*

A friend showed me this a few weeks ago, it is neat 8D

The quality isn't very good but >>; what do you expect really? xD

I had a few problems with lag, the video would stop but the audio would keep going. So I had to restart the stream.

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 >__<

Go check the channel's schedules on their websites o: And check hikki's / ayumi's websites media pages for any events and shows they may be on or airing o:

And... this is based off of p2p right? So, there being more people being on, wouldn't it have better quality and less lag?

Unless it's because we live so far away from Japan / most of the viewers :x

^ but it's streaming live. so P2P can't work then right? Because for P2P you have to actually save something on the PC right? dunno though xD

well I guess it's so slow because we live far away indeed. There's now a five second lag between audio and video on TV asahi :(

You can make it go full screen~

Detach the video window from the main window (forgot how, there's a button somewhere to do it, I don't have it installed right now :x) Then hit alt+enter o:

I have my TV hooked up through the S-Video port on my graphics card acting as a second "monitor" that I run my video's on in full screen 8D

If you can do the same 8D it helps a lot~ So you can still use your computer and watch JP Television o:

So, this is free correct? How long does it take to download? How much space does it take up on your computer? Is the lag so bad you can't really watch?

- yes
- about 10 seconds
- about 1 kb XD
- yes it's horrible.

not sure about the space, but it was nearly nothing.

and the lagging is so bad I don't use the program much anymore. But I'll DEFINITELY use it to watch Ayu's Asia Tour 2008 live!! <3

oh and what about her Countdown live! that's ACTUALLY live! not like Asia Tour that has been performed months ago. I'll be watching her when she's actually performing in Tokyo ;__; Now I really hope Countdown Live will air on a channel supported by keyhole!

I don't know if I want it then if the lag is that bad. What about the picture quality? Can you watch it in high quality or is there only one setting? How many channels are there?

you downloading it is much less trouble than me explaining it, really!

It doesn't even need to be installed.

quality really low, about 15 channels, including:

TV Asahi
TV Tokyo
TV Yokohama
Nippon TV

(TV = terebi)

lots more

It literally takes 2 seconds to download, and takes up less space than a music song. The quality isn't too bad

I guess I'll have to go home and dl it, but I'm just not looking forward to the lag. I HATE lag. I despise it. But to see some shows from Japan, I guess I could fight through the pain. =)

It's not at all painful lag.


Literally it's pretty much (for me) unnoticable

Alright, well I'm trusting you Colin, but if it disappoints me, I will blame you. I say this as I give an evil grin.=)
