View Full Version : Getting rid of weird messages on TV

So I've just got a TV, a few channels (wowow, star) seem to have bizzare transluscent messages filling up a chunk of the screen with Japanese writing.
How do you get rid of these?
Can you?
My theory is these channels are normally subscription channels but there's some sort of special limited time viewing going on- albeit with the annoying message.

I think you're right. For me, wowow will only show stuff about half the time with the writing over the top (the other half of the time there's just a message saying something about not having the channel).

hmm, dang, wonder how often they do this and how much subscribing would cost in theory- watching a man utd game right now and was watching the local j league team the other day. Which is awesome.

On the subject of Japanese TVs....whats up with NHK2? It just doesn't seem to want to work for me.

Who makes your TV? Check to see if there are english menu options anywhere.

I fumbled through the Japanese on mine for a week before accidentally discovering "言語". I hadn't even thought to look for it.
