I tried to watch the Paralympics yesterday on Japan(s terrestrial channels.

Not even a glimpse.

It was about 2PM.

All I saw on TV was the normal travel,cooking,historical and inane comedy shows.

This from the host nation!

Agreed. - “JTV Olympic coverage was Lame.” - Well, it’s “PATHETIC” actually.

Someone don't know how to use grammar!

Also your understanding of the internet is limited if you believe anybody, anywhere in the world can access the same websites as you are able to even using VPN regional settings.

Spitfire, not sure what you have on your TV but the event is covered on NHK 総合 and when it’s time for news, they would advise you to switch to NHK E to continue watching any live event then… If you have BS channels, the evens are on those too… And you can also watch NHK live stream for multiple events on their website.
