We believe the world looks at news very differently than most Americans get to see it. It is a critical part of our strategy to make sure every voice is heard. We have searched the globe and identified who the best and most diverse distributors of news content are and have made it a priority to bring our viewers as many of these voices as possible. We are executing this strategy both on our own television station WRNN and by creating full-time cable distribution in the marketplace for our partners.
RNN is building a prime time lineup of the best of what the world has to offer in English language 24-hour news. We are partnering with the preeminent distributors to showcase their best news content each day on the WRNN prime time evening lineup.
NHK World is currently available full-time in the following locations:
Time Warner Cable NYC
Time Warner Cable (Non-NYC*)
*including Bergen and Hudson Counties in N.J.; Mount Vernon and the Hudson Valley in N.Y.
Verizon FiOS NY DMA
Comcast NY DMA
NHK World's daily news program Newsline airs on WRNN at 7pm ET. RNN also airs periodic specials produced by NHK such as the series surrounding the one year anniversary of the tsunami in Japan.
In addition, RNN will launch NHK World on cable with their own full-time channel in New York DMA in the Spring of 2012.
NHK World TV is the all-English language channel from NHK, with "Your Eye on Asia," featuring live news at the top of every hour from Tokyo and news bureaus in over 30 worldwide locations. Programs also feature business, public affairs, food, fashion, culture, music, travel and other genres.
