Cable TV company WOWOW will launch 3 new channels in October. The three new channels are WOWOWPrime, featuring “the best” in latest entertainment, WOWOWLive, which will air live sports and music events, and WOWOWCinema, a 24-hour movie channel. Viewers can subscribe to the new channels for 2,415 yen a month.
Soccer announcer and former Japan coach Takeshi Okada, 54, was present at the launch ceremony. Recently back from teaching soccer classes in tsunami-damaged Tohoku, he said, “When I was up there, I really felt the power of sports; its power to bring hope to people. I think WOWOW has that power too.”© Japan Today
