Re: NHK 24 hour news on clear QAM, but not set-top box
Might be the only way. I noticed at the WRNN website that while NHK has outlets on 3 systems, including Comcast, Al-Jazeera English has only 2, and does not have a Comcast entry.
I'll have to check again to see if any of the other english-language international news services from WRNN are present in clear QAM.
Enjoy. We get NHK World 24-7 in Philly and their documentaries are great.
I've been watching NHK's Newsline half-hour news show daily since March 2011. It is carried on CPTV at 7pm (in SD), midnight (in HD) and 10:00am (in SD).
I have been impressed with the quality of reporting and investigation. NHK offers an excellent window into the southeast Asia region, with coverage of things like TPP, ASEAN and the South China Sea tensions.
Now that I can see it 24/7, I'll be able to see some of their non-news offerings as well.
