I remember a couple of times when the streaming video started so
early that I was able to watch Makushita matches. In September '05 I
saw Makushita matches on Days, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
On days 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13 I logged in early enough to see
Jonidan matches. That was heaven! It took me several days to get up
early enough to turn on my computer before the video started. I
don't remember why I missed Days 14 & 15, but I have all the others
written down. You have time for that when you are retired!
I don't know what the expense involved for the Kyokai is. But if they
are worried about competing with other TV and video services
in-country, they could fix the video so that only computers outside
of Japan could log in. Or limit the number of logins from within
Japan. Then too, I suppose they have to pay someone to operate the
camera. I would do it for nothing (IF they would pay my way to Japan :-) ).
I was surprised on Day 1 of the recent basho when I slept late and
was able to login in the middle of the Makuuchi matches. Usually all
the "virtual sockets" are taken by then.
