My husband is constantly asking me, where is China’s NHK World – the international broadcasting service of NHK (Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai – Japan Broadcasting Corporation)? I think he isn’t alone. I don’t watch TV much and never looked for a Chinese channel. He, on the other hand, looked. What he found, is Chinese channels with Chinese subtitles. He wondered where is the English subtitle?
Inspires interest in your country.
He would watch the NHK World and learns a thing or two about Japan. Like it or not, he would rather visit Japan than China at this point. Growing up in USA, Asian history takes a small part, on the back burner. He wonders why China doesn’t promote itself the way Japan does?
Tonight, among other things, is Wasabi + vodka cocktail in a restaurant. A jazz club in Tokyo with a cover charge of ¥2,000 (about US$19), and of course, Obama’s address of bombing ISIS in Syria on its Newsline. The news around the world but centered on Japan, of course.
From time to time, the cable company (Verizon or CableVision) offers subscription to Chinese channel. I never watched so I don’t know if it offers some channels in English.
