NHK WORLD TV, the international English-language service of NHK, is now available in Myanmar via the local satellite service provider SKYNET seven days a week, 24 hours per day.
Myanmar is very much in the international spotlight as it continues to make progress toward democracy. NHK hopes the quality news and diverse range of programming on NHKWORLD TV will foster mutual understanding between the two countries.
The political and economic progress in Myanmar is likely to increase the number of SKYNET subscribers, which currently totals around 200,000 households.
NHK WORLD PREMIUM, the Japanese-language TV service geared toward Japanese people living overseas, is also available, on request from SKYNET.
NHK WORLD TV provides international audiences with news and a range of programmes featuring traditional Japanese culture, contemporary trends, and many more. The service is available in about 130 countries and regions around the world and it has a potential audience of approximately 160 million households.
