WHEN will you be getting TV Japan in HD. The feed has been available in HD for several years now. Bell's FIBE TV has had it for years. They are also IPTV.
Dish Network also has it in HD.
Many of the Japanese customers pretty much ONLY watch that channel and will not hesitate to switch to another provider that offers better quality. There are already a few "Internet" TV boxes with better solutions available... not quite mainstream yet, but will be soon.
