The BBC in JPN

This might be nice.

BBC Worldwide Ltd, the commercial arm of the British Broadcasting Corp, and digital data broadcaster Japan MediArk Co, launched BBC Japan on Wednesday, the first BBC wholly owned entertainment channel especially developed for audiences in Japan.

BBC Japan offers TV viewers across the country a mix of comedy, drama, factual entertainment, children’s and learning programming, as well as talk shows and documentaries. Most of the programs are subtitled in Japanese. The 24-hour channel is offered at a monthly fee of 735 yen. It will be broadcast on channel 025 of Sky PerfecTV 110 on the CS 110 degree satellite.

I get the BBC WORLD news channel on Sky PerfecTV, but I think getting some non-news stuff from the UK might be nice. If there’s anything out there like THE OFFICE (probably the funniest series I’ve seen in years), then I’ll be quite happy.
