NHK WORLD-JAPAN, the English-language international service of Japan’s sole public broadcaster, NHK, is partnering with Houston Public Media and Xfinity to bring its live news and Japanese lifestyle programming to Greater Houston. Area viewers can tune in to broadcast channel 8.4 or Xfinity channels 304 and 1152 to catch the latest international and Asian news and enjoy cultural programs devoted to everything from homestyle Japanese cooking to anime to bicycling the countryside.

NHK WORLD-JAPAN delivers a unique and diverse blend of English-language programming featuring hourly live international news from Tokyo and 30 news bureaus around the globe, including New York City, along with programs covering Japanese society, politics, scientific advancement, culture, history, food and lifestyle.

“We are delighted to bring the news and unique cultural perspective of NHK WORLD-JAPAN to audiences across Greater Houston,” said Mr. Jun Takao, President and CEO of Japan International Broadcasting, Inc. “The Houston community is one of the most diverse in the United States and its people thrive on international culture, so it is a pleasure to bring this content to its English-speaking Asian population and the broader audience that wishes to know more about Japanese news, current events, and culture.“

With the addition of Houston, NHK WORLD-JAPAN is now broadcast in 14 metro markets in the U.S. and available to stream online.  

“The programming provided by NHK WORLD-JAPAN is consistent with our mission to inform, educate and inspire the people of Houston with intelligent, enriching and culturally significant programming,” said Lisa Trapani Shumate, associate vice president and general manager, Houston Public Media. “It’s a pleasure to partner with NHK WORLD-JAPAN to bring this high-quality content to Greater Houston viewers.”
