宜しくお願い致しますm(_)m

New here, guys. ;) Currently few apps for watching Japanese TV Live are WORKING FOR MAC. I guess these developers have known about this kind of the requirement and devoted it. After all, filling the gap of the market means to attract more users ;>

Searching on Google, so many threads from various forums are talking about it. Hard to get one solution for Mac COMPUTER! I saw here there are two apps: isakura and fujitv. I FOUND THAT fujitv.live can be used on WEB AND ON MAC as long as I DOWNLOAD a Flash plugin for mac. WOW, a big surprise!!!

Expecting the app for iOS to watch Japanese tv channels.

I second that, FUJITV is legit the best! Also, when I had issues with the streaming (although rarely happened), this company was quick to respond to my email and even offered reimbursement/compensation of extra one month subscription. It's been working great via my Amazon Fire TV.

I am in no way getting any incentives or in any way part of the company. Just like Pato, I am here to vouch that FUJITV does provide the channels and services that are exceptional, that I can't get through Spectrum (formerly known as Time Warner) that only have 3 crappy channels for almost double the monthly price.

Check out their website, you can actually stream via trial on the web. That's how I was convinced it was worth a try. and I'm glad I did.

While I cannot confirm that it works with the Amazon Fire TV stick in Canada, I was able to successfully install it on my Fire TV using the program adbLink.

I can also vouch for the quality watching it on a Panasonic VIERA TV. No stuttering or lag. However, I mostly watch it on my laptop and I have noticed the quality does differ on certain channels and with recorded playback. I've used mostly WOWOW prime and TV TOKYO as examples. I also do use a VPN when on my laptop so that may affect it as well. There's some stuttering that's noticeable.

I used this tutorial since the one from FUJITV Live is a little outdated. It doesn't mention that you have to create a "new" connection if you've never set this up before.

You're so welcome! :D Just as a little add on to my post, I only used the above tutorial up until it starts talking about Kodi. After that, I stopped since the Kodi element doesn't apply to me. I just needed to be able to "push" the .apk file over to the Fire TV wirelessly which is what the tutorial explains.

The FUJITV Live tutorial talks about a program called "adbFire" which I couldn't find scouring the internet. I think "adbLink" replaced it since they are made by the same person: "jocala."

Hope this helps anyone looking for more insight on FUJITV Live! I like it a lot so far!

@Bella Lovelle: Hi, I'm really interested in using Fuji TV, but my budget is extremely tight due to low income and I can't afford to pay even the on-sale price of $28 per month. I only watch TV occasionally (maybe once or twice a week), so I am wondering if you could consider offering a cheaper price for casual viewers.

Other country TV boxes (China, India, etc.) are a lot cheaper and feature a lot more channels and content for less than $10 per month, but I assume that your prices are high because of competition (iSakura, which is also expensive). I strongly believe that if you make your subscriptions cheaper, a lot more people would subscribe and you will make much more profit in the end.

Maybe you could make a really basic version that only includes some channels instead of all of them? Kind of similar to the monthly iSakura 24 channel version, but focuses on only the main channel. For example, offering the first 14 channels in this list: https://japannettv.com/shop/image/catal ... nnel24.png

I hope your company can consider this and make Japanese TV more affordable to the foreign public. Thank you. :roll

Is there any option for watch Japanese TV using Kodi at my Raspberry Pi 3? (addon)

Thanks
Hello every one. I dig up this question, as no one gave an answer :cry: ... and i would be interested ny it :whistling: !

In fact I can use the web interface of iSakura with chromium on a desktop session, but the tiny proc of the RP3 is struggling @65% to output video, and buffering quite often (once every minutes or two), especially in full screen mode.
Is there a way using kodi for example ?

Thanks in advance for you answers :D

Both comes from same servers but they are sold by different seller. It's up to you to choose the interface you like the most. For me i prefer fujitv, the interface looks much better.
