Japan With Kids - Forums: Moving to and Leaving Japan: Moving To Japan: American Television

Hi - I know this might seem like a crazy posting but my husband and could be relocating from the US to take a work assignment in Tokyo. As a stay at home mom in the US - TV is my lifeline. Is there satellite television available with american shows from NBC - ABC - CBS etc!

Any info would be greatly appreciated

There is Sky Perfect and here is the link to what they have available:

They have Fox and show some reruns from other channels, like Friends. Your best bet is to get DVDs of shows as they come out. TV here is pretty awful in my opinion.

Cable TV usually covers most of the Skyperfectv channels plus the NHK satelite channels which show a lot of foreign news from various countries. Not all districts have cable and not all cable have the same channels, so if you haven't decided where to live, this is worth considering about. Cable TV also provides internet.

When we moved to overseas the first time I spent 2 months recording tons of PBS shows for my kids to watch. We then had to purchase a "multi-system" VCR, but it was great. I also had a friend who passed on recordings of prime-time shows that a family member recorded for her and then mailed them once a month....those were awesome as well. Maybe you could find someone who would be willing to do that for was nice seeing the "current" stuff, too....even if it was a month or so later.
