By watching the cases in Malaysia and Sri Lanka, I thought it is very clear/easy to access which programs/channels to watch because they are divided in different languages. Also, it is very good that they can save and learn their local languages/cultures by having local language programs. I found it interesting to see the governments’ speculations that some governments imposing additional costs to broadcast oversea programs or some observing the contents. One of the points that Japan can learn from other countries is that Thailand has more English programs than Japan even though their official language is not English. Japan should make such programs more.
Finally, I like the phrase “TV anytime” and “TV anywhere” because it is the perfect line telling the TV in the future. Although there are problems of copyrights and reproducing, I think it is a big chance for Japanese programs to be watched more, having the increase of people viewing TV on the Internet. I feel frustrated that it is said “Japan is behind in exportation of its contents”, so I want Japanese TVs to fight against other rivals of around the world more and more, and I want to help it in some ways.
