From Oct 1, NHK Net Radio will also be available on smartphones. NHK Net Radio will make access to the stations easier for listeners by solving reception problems inside buildings or in regions with wireless interference.

Radio 1 is a great way of improving one's nihongo listening-comprehension skills, it should be pointed out. This is being called "a service"? Don't most stations around the world stream already, and without calling it "a service"?

Good news, although this has been done by most stations I know off. Even the bandwidth starved Africa has been doing this for years

A Great activist sometime does not succeed as a great leader. I believe he found a great spot where his heart truly belongs.
