The company became Japan’s first subscription-based satellite television broadcaster when it began commercial broadcasting (pay-TV, 24-hour service) in 1991, and now presents about 2,400,000 viewers with entertainment from around the world.
Currently, the company's main business consists of procurement, production and scheduling of programming and telecasting via broadcast satellite (“BS”), on a subscription basis.
