Hi all, 

I recently discontinued my NHK subscription and, instead, watch the Sjmo Highlights program on NHK World.  Has anyone else noticed, and is it true also on the NHK subscription live sumo channel, that the applause seems canned? It’s just so unlike any type of audience feat icon I’ve ever heard before on live TVJapan  NHK or NHK World. 

This is not a criticism; I grew up with canned applause and laughter on so many tv sitcoms . It’s just weird, especially if it’s supposed to be for  the viewers’ benefit and not for the rikishi.
