Does anyone know whether the Kyokai is entertaining thoughts of
establishing its own sumo cable channel? During tournaments, the Sumo
channel could run live feeds of lower division bouts, before handing off
to NHK for the main event. It could also replay the day's top division
matches. Between basho, there is so much programming that it could
offer, live and taped. I'm sure they could attract enough sponsors to
make this financially feasible.
The Sumo Channel could also improve the following of sumo in Japan, and
wouldn't it be great if the Sumo Channel were available
internationally. What immovable forces would have to be overcome for
this to be done?
