Advertisement keeps on popping out while using and after closing this app. All channels cannot stream. Tokyo MX is still NOT added back. Please add back Tokyo MX and repair AT-X as soon as possible because I am now very frustrated. Hurry! Please add another channel, BS11.

Can't watch anything at all. All channel keeps buffering. Edit: May 2022 - It works most of tve time now.
Apr 24, 2022
Update after so many months of using: Fujitv now lagging. Can't even watch one piece episode 1015 now. After a few minutes, the app itself will crash. The hell happened with this app? After so many updates, it's getting crappier and crappier every update.

No longer working. Plays same clip upto 1 minute 30 second mark and then nothing. Shame really as it was a great app.

Was good at one time but now your lucky to get any channels don't waste your time there are better apps out there.

The only station that works is the 24 hour news station and it stops playing after it reaches a certain point. All the others are always buffering and never can watch anything.

HONESTLY. It's a good app overall. It does what it's suppose to do. HOWEVER, there are channels that do not show or are laggy. I think it is not entirely the fault of the app, but the broadcast signal as well since other apps experience the same issue. This affects the overall use of the app. It has become unreliable. I hope the developer can do something, but it might be out of their control.

It was an amazing app. But now most of the channels buffer or get stuck. There is some or the other problem with all channels except one or two. Please check the streams and resolve the issue

From the beginning all the channels are okay, even mbs. And now almost every channel cannot play. Please fix this issue.

No casting device installed, so uninstalled it immediately. Throw it right in the trash. Very disappointed.
Dec 9, 2021
I was so happy that new channels like Disney and Animax were added to the list, but now they are not working at all... Please fix this!
Nov 25, 2021
Nice looking app. Unfortunately It does not work for watching Tokyo MX on this app and also on many other Japanese tv apps in America. 😕

the application is good but the image resolution is too high so for slow internet it gets stuck if you can the resolution can be set for example from 240p so you can also watch it when the internet is slow

NHK, TBS screen freese and TV Asahi and TV Tokyo not working for quite sometimes. Only Fuji and Nihon TV can be seen. Sad!!
Oct 4, 2021
This app was great at one time, now it's just frozen tv stations stuck on 65% buffering and showing ads every minute of trying to get something to work. Pixel 2 xl and 3 xl

This app is Superb but only reason to give 4 stars is that it can improvise by adding English Subtitles for non-japanese viewers... Please add subtitles too...

I can't watch anything :') please fix the problem, I really like watching Japanese tv shows with this app before. please fix the app :')

After the last update, most of the channels don't work. Please could you fix this issue? 🙂 Thank you!

Please support app with lesser known channels e.g. MBS, and NHK E, wouldn't mind getting a paid version of the app to access Japanese TV.

Can't watch any of the tv channels, it gets stuck on the loading screen, and when I tap back it just plays the adds over and over again.

Please fix tv Tokyo and tv asahi and im tired of all these ads I just wanna watch all the Japanese shows fix it
Aug 10, 2021
The app does what it's supposed to do, however the user interface is somewhat lacking. One thing I've noticed after continuous use is that Animax no longer appears as one of the channels that can be watched

This app stopped the streaming after 10 second frequently,, so annoying,, before update the app still good to watch,, but now, this app is not recommended.. useless

Most of the channels are unavailable most of the time, but that doesn't stop the app spamming you with adverts. You're better off looking for Japanese TV channel streams on YouTube.

I was able to watch tokyo olympics from Somalia despite the language barrier. But now it does not open again. Fix it pliz

Came in search of copper and found GOLD!!!!😍 To all those who are reviewing this badly, the person who made this app is God. He/she deserves all the money from those ads since none of us can donate to help them. I am alright with the ads as long as I am able to watch Japanese TV. Thank you and kudos to the creator of this app!!
Jul 30, 2021
As a person who is currently learning Japanese, I've heard that watching Japanese media without subtitles is a good way to practice your translation skills. This app has a lot of options when it comes to TV channels. However, the user interface isn't really good though and I think its strange that it doesn't have an settings menu or anything. The app recently started having issues with the video player and it freezes from time to time. If there was a paid ad-free version, I'd definitely buy it.

This app is good, I like to watch it everyday, but on my Huawei Nova 5T, the videos from all channels don't show on full screen. Can you fix it, I'll give you 5 stars.
Jul 25, 2021
Way to many adds! I touch the screen an ad pops up, opening a channel ad pops up, leaving a channel ad pops up.

I cannot watch any channel on my phone because of the intrusive ads that keep popping up every 10 seconds. I thought it would be the best app for watching Japanese TV in the Highest definition, but I was wrong.

Live streaming stops every 2 minutes. Every restart brings up an advertisement. This app is an advertisement spammer. It is just a way for the author to bring in cash from advertisement.

Dropped to 1 star. After all the "updates" and adding not so useful channels, the stream got to be super unstable. Not worth using anymore sadly.

Its actually pretty good since i can finally watch them here in the Philippines, but then yesterday almost all of the channels cannot be seen or open. What happened?? Thank you.

Would be better if we have the option ti choose the video quality of the stream. My internet speed is really fast but somehow the quality is really low here

I used to love this app. It was basically the only way to watch (live) Japanese tv, but now I can only watch 7 seconds at a time, and have to close the app and open again before it allows me another 7seconds...

You can't change channels after you pick one. I usually have to completely close the app and restart it to go to another channel. Otherwise the app is great.

Used to be good.. But now ADS ADS ADS ADS ADS ADS ADS ADS.. All 30 second unskippable ads every couple minutes

Works ok sometimes, can be very finicky at other times. Adding Space Shower TV would bring my rating up for sure.

Channels can't scroll smoothly between channels (they move too quickly/erratically when swiped). App crashes on Google TV w/Chromecast.

this app has helped me stay updated with anime and live action shows I like. after update other channels went missing again (for example "MBS" and "Animax"). returning the missing channels would be really appreciated!

It's actually working pretty well, surprisingly well and has a lot of japanese channels. I can listen to them on the background, but it would have been perfect if they could enable a float option for the video too

Everything is great with this app. I hope the other channels can be "re-included" on the line-up such as MTV Japan, Animax, Disney Channel Japan, WOWOW CINEMA, TOEI Channel etc.

Bad stream quality after update. The channels work now but are streamed at 360p, please increase the quality.

I'm only giving this app a one star. Cause once you are in this app. Their is no way going back to main screen. Without having to turn your phone off and on. So you can go back to your phone main screen. This app sucks and needs more work done with it.

Love this site...but for the last 3 days I cant get any channels at all. Please....fix this issue. Many channels suddenly just disappeared. Why???

It now works, but it seems that it lost some channels like Tokyo MX, Eigeki, Kantele, NHK E, ToeiCh, etc. I hope they return. Best regards!

This would get 5 stars if I could use it on my android TV or Firestick that use the remote to change channels. I can only use it on my Samsung S10+.

This app is very useful for me because now I can finally watch my favorite Japanese anime and shows in their native language live. I check the time zone in Tokyo, Japan because some of my favorite shows air on Sunday and that Japan is 9 hours ahead.

I noticed that more channels have been added after the update. However, just like others said, I couldn't open any of them now. Hopefully, the developers could check the problem and solve it. I do enjoy a lot in using this app previously. Thank you! 2021.2.22: I updated and now it's working! Thanks a lot!
Feb 20, 2021
I was able to watch 1 show then i closed the app cause the next show that i'll watch is 30 minutes after. Then when i opend the app again, i can't watch anymore. Channels loads but when i clickef the channel, it will just forever. Fix pls.

I guess the development is still not perfect. 2 days ago it worked fine but for the latest update today, it didn't work again. Hope for the next update, the problem will be fixed. Thank you in advance.
Feb 19, 2021

Okay, I'm reviewing the app again because it's now working and deserving of 5 stars. Honestly this app is amazing for Japanese learners. I felt compelled to donate money to the developers paypal (option available among the channels) THANK YOU FOR THIS SERVICE!!

At first all channels were okay until the recent update,, even one channel doesn't play anymore. I wish they fix this soon because it really helps us a lot especially foreigners like me who wants to learn more about this country. 🇯🇵🙏🥺

This app is great 👌 Saiko desu. But just recently the last update made the app useless. All channels are black out. Please fix it. Onegai shimasu.
Feb 16, 2021
after the latest update, dosent work at all !! black screen is the only thing that i gat! was a great app before update!
Feb 15, 2021
BROKEN Since the last update all I see is a black screen with a play button and pink dot. Nothing works as it used to be. If it ever gets fixed please enable the cast to TV option!
Ueda NoYome
Feb 14, 2021
I got to give 2 stars because as soon as I've installed the latest update I can't rely on its services any longer, as whichever channel I try to watch it just won't work anymore. Before this latest update it worked just fine, great video quality, all channels working and not lagging, but right after the update it stopped working.

This is great..but could be better as I am not sure how to change channels inside the app...as everytime I have to close the app and restart....
Austin Jones

I absolutely love this app. I have only one complaint. It won't run on any android emulator like Memu or androidx86. So I can't watch on my pc. If it worked on Memu it would get 5 stars.

I think this application is useful to an extent, but it is poorly-developed. It's not very interactable. The stream does not undergo relentless buffering, nevertheless, it still does so to some extent, and I would anticipate that this would result in some hectic delay in timing. Overall, an application developed that performs its required function, but developed with such lousy precision that it failed to care for a lot of the quasi-minor aspects expected to have been folded into this.

Very awesome app. I hope you add more channels soon. I'm looking for Ninonkai TV so I can watch the downtown New years eve special.
Dec 27, 2020
i just got my first hp chromebook & when i install the app just now, i went to check it out & it keeps knocking me off(same thing happen weeks ago when i installed it on my tablet), so i would not recommend this app if you're looking to watch japanese live tv, my apologies for being rude but i was just being honest so it's neither my tablet or chromebook, something is wrong with the app.

I love these app. All channels runs smoothly. Thank you Very much. I Love this app. Please try to add some satellite channels like TV Asahi CS 1 &2... THEN it will be perfect😊😊😊
Neil Stuart
Dec 7, 2020
So while it is true some channels are currently inaccessible, it seems to be of no fault of the app. The bigger channels do seem to have taken the effort to lockout access but other channels are still available. Don't know when, if ever, this issue will resolve but the app is trying its best. Update: It does have full functionality if you VPN in or, of course, are in country.
Dec 7, 2020
Works great, IF you are in country or have a VPN. Limited utility otherwise but not completely useless for a couple channels.

I love to watch Japanese TV program. I didn't experience errors or bufferings from any of the channels. I suggest to the developer to add additional channels like BS television station (BS NHK, BS Nittere, etc.)
Nov 27, 2020
I need some more feature like if it can give me the list of episodes and timing ect .than it will more use full

Nov 25, 2020
I suggest adding cast to screen feature so I can connect it to my TV. Overall, high quality and smooth experience, also not much ads. Delay is also not that much too.Good Job!
Christian Lopez
Nov 14, 2020
I hope they offer directional controls for people who use the app on TV Boxes. Other than that it is a great app.
Oct 29, 2020
I like the app but here are some channels that dont work like family gekijo, history, eisei gekijo and japanese channel DX. I hope it gets fixed soon.
Sanjida Akhter
Oct 26, 2020
Please add TV Asahi CS. Because I want to watch the Japanese anime. Please add this channel on your next update. This will very helpful for us. And also please update the other channels which are don't work. Such as History, Japan family . Please fix this and please please please please add TV Asahi CS. I am waiting for this channel.😉😉😉 This is a kind request.

So there is a lot of services that you can get with your fire stick or apple TV and you can purchase a package which will give you a majority of TV channels from Japan, however it isn't compatible with most devices and is $$$.However this app is good and other than the ads which aren't as frequent the app streams pretty good with NHK and NHK world being the best ones to stream on this app. Some channels take a minute to work, but for being free its pretty good. Theres just isn't a guide

George Chen

Works better than any app I've come across for getting live Japanese TV. Occasionally some channels fail to play, hard to say whose fault that is though. Ads are to be expected, though they are a bit loud, usually much louder than the channel. Still, happy that it works.
Mattia Genovese

5 stars because, yes, currently most channels are not visible but every time I lose faith in this app, developers update it and they are up once again. Their effort is admirable and this alone is worth 5 stars. Please, don't give up on this app.
Naveencj Nos
Sep 5, 2020
App has been updating for the last several days, but still many channels are not being updated, so I am giving three stars for the app, I think the app will improve in the coming days.😔😔😔

JapaneseTV - I expect TV in Japanese. Instead 1) hardly works; 2) most news and entertainment is in English; 3) the shopping and manga channels are the ones that work best. I guess I can improve my Japanese with shopping channels.

I used to love this app, somehow recently several channels keep can found the video error. It's hurt especially when you can't watch nippon tv, for watadou weekly every Wednesday 10pm.please fix it

Please fix the video especially on TV Asahi, I just want to watch Kamen Rider and Super Sentai really bad.

Not even in High Definition but already has hiccups every few seconds. My download and upload speeds are over 10Mbps but the app streaming still performs poorly and low quality image.

It's great but needs some improvement for example in Iran we need VPN to watch it but the Korean same application doesn't need Thanks

Very lag even with full signal. And there's no screen mirroring for TV. A lot of space for improvement.
Robert D. Luna
May 7, 2020
I just download the app and I like! Yes, it's true, some of the channels don't load and still on a white screen. I wish all of them would work, but I'm not complaining. Does in buffer? Yes. I hope they can add more channels and restore the ones that don't currently work.

Is this a joke. This app shows nothing all the people that are giving this app a high rating are just people who are baiting others.
Feb 25, 2020
Just like the Korean version of this app, I love the many choices of channels. I just wish that I can use my Chromecast on this app 😄
Feb 12, 2020
This is a good App for watching japanese programs however you can only watch it on touch on device e.g. tablet/phone. This app does not work if you install it on tv box to watch on tv using remote/mouse to my demise. The only alternative is to screen mirror/cast it to tv which gives some lag unfortunately. Can you please update the app so watching on TV box using remote/mouse is possible?? Thanks.
Jan 30, 2020
I love watching Japanese tv.. But can you add english sub.. Because i dont understand what they saying.. Please
Jan 27, 2020
Works good & quick. The only down side is that you can't rotate your screen 180°. Since I have a phone case that functions as a stand, it'd be nice to have that feature added.
Dec 20, 2019
No Japanese anime movies it would been cool but if had that and those Japanese commercials too. It does have Japanese game shows..😅
Nov 30, 2019
Good, but a few channel can't play. Hope you can fix it. Thank you for create this apps. International fans here. I love japan tv
Nov 26, 2019
This app is amazing for watching japanese channels.I have just one request please add wowow live here too.
Oct 10, 2019
Please answer me! I wondering where i could watch M-on live via internet/streaming. I need to watch Idolish7 digest in October 20, 2019. I hope it's available online, in bilibili? But i want to know they do like others.
Sep 21, 2019
The best live Japanese TV app I have tried. Good choice of channels. Occassionally one or two channels don't work but it doesn't happen too often. Sometimes the screen freezes but it sorts itself out. I find these minor issues don't bother me much as I'm so happy I can now easily watch Japanese TV and the app is free! Screen is full size (not a tiny square like some apps) and I can easily use screen mirroring on my TV, if I prefer. Well done and thank you for this app. I love it!
Sep 12, 2019
What happened to Tokyo MX channel? It was considered as one of the best TV channels in Japan, and a few days later, it receives an error stating that it has stopped working. I want to watch SAO Alicization: War of Underworld by the time it arrives and I can't believe that the channel ended up in an error. Fix this as soon as possible! Side note: Add BS11, AT-X in the list.
Sep 9, 2019
For what it does, it does well. However, most channel options are not available, once clicked on an error message is all you get. Please fix this issue. Besides that there isn't really much else wrong with this app. It works well, play back is a little glitchy at times, but it's minimal and to be expected. Really, if this main issue of most channels being unavailable to watch is fixed, I will rate this 5 stars.
Aug 3, 2019
good but it will not let me watch a show more than an hour and I have to restart the app but it is good
Jul 16, 2019
Works very well but the orientation is stuck - you have to hold your phone a certain way which is upside down to how I normally watch stuff on my phone. for this annoying reason I won't be using this app much if at all.
Jun 20, 2019
Many choices of Japanese TV channels. Only problem is some have a small picture. I have not discovered a way to make the picture larger. Anyway is much better than paying $25.00-$50.00 a month.
