NHK to cut satellite TV channels; 8K at risk

Japanese publicly-funded broadcaster NHK has frequently been criticised for its number of TV channels as providing unfair competition to the country’s private stations. Now it is set to trim the number of satellite TV channels available.

NHK will cut two of its satellite channels, down from four. This means it will consolidate the current BS1, BS Premium and BS4K (BS stands for ‘Broadcast Satellite’) into one channel.
