Taking advantage of NHK's extensive network, the on-the-hour LIVE 30-minute NEWSLINE news segments are complemented by a diverse array of programming focused on Japanese culture and lifestyle, trends in technology and business, and Japan's role and opinions regarding important global issues. NHK World TV is the only international news gathering source currently using High Definition (HD) technology and equipment in the studio AND on location - which creates a stunning visual presentation throughout all the news segments.
