Customer Reviews

Perfect for NHK Viewers!!!

Perfect for those who enjoy NHK shows.

However, if you're one to watch their news as well, the non-perfect 4 star rating is because I prefer the original NHK app to this one as it seems easier to maneuver in. Browsing through news stories seems to be better in that version.

However, overall appearance-wise, this app is an improvement and runs better on my ipad pro compared to the other version.

Favorite app

This app and the programming is perfect in every way. News on the hour and a wide range of great variety shows in between. Anything from cooking to hiking to learning the language, fashion, architecture, tourist-y activities, you name it. I can't recommend this app enough.

Only one thing missing

The app is perfect but I wish they enable us to stream the channel to chromecast, or make the channel stream live on YouTube so we can stream it on TV cause not all US channel providers offer this channel.
