    Hello Everyone, As many of you know my stream on Twitch is one of the sources to watch live sumo. Near the end of the Aki basho Asojima said goodbye from posting all the different live streaming options (huge thanks for his efforts), if anyone wants to take over please make a different thread for it. I thought I'd open this one to keep my viewers and followers up to date about my channel. With only a few days to go until the start of Kyushu Basho there are some news I'd like to share. The good news is there is going to be some kind of improvement on picture quality. My source changed from 576p to 720p 30fps and although I've always streamed at 720p 60fps it was thanks to an upscaling process done by my capturing card, from now on there will be no need to upscale the video. The bad news on the other hand is that I'll only start my streams at Makunouchi Dohyo Iri in the next 3 Bashos, all because of the stupid clock setting in Europe. Hopefully this was the last one... That's all for now, any feedback and suggestions are welcome. See you all on Sunday, I can hardly wait.

    With just a few days to go until Nagoya I'm here again with some news. The IPTV source I've been using for recent Bashos has gone. For a while it looked like I'd have to go back to Japanese commentary but I worked my way around it so we won't be left without Murray and company :) Hopefully everything will be ok on Twitch as well. See you on Sunday and don't forget to join us on Discord. When you do, make sure to check out our own Sumo game there :)

    Hello Sumo fans, Only a few days to go until the May Tournament kicks off. As I promised I'll start my streams earlier than the last 3 Bashos. On weekdays I'll try to start at Juryo (if I manage to get up that early ) and on weekends a little later when NHK G start their coverage, normally at 3:05 JST. I was adviced by one of my mods to open a Discord server so that my viewers and followers can chat about sumo during or even between tournaments if they feel like it. Here's the invite link for it: https://discord.gg/Nbbm9D6 You can also follow and contact me on FB https://www.facebook.com/mbovosumo/ See you all on Sunday

    Again, it's over. Thanks all for picking my channel. Over 1100 followers, over 200 000 total channel views, and over 500 live viewers today. Pretty nice numbers :) Once again, big thanks to quite a few really knowledgable folks in the chatroom for patiently educating the newcomers, a huge thanks to the mods for keeping it nice and tidy and a special thanks to my supporters for all the generous donations. 7 weeks without Sumo now, not my favourite weeks, already looking forward to May the 12th. And remember, because of the clocks being set back to summer-time I'm planning on streaming Juryo as well in the next 3 Bashos. Have a nice spring Everyone and see you all in May :)

    Can anyone else confirm what Amamaniac says? Because when I click on any of my videos (even when logged out of my account) I can watch all of them. https://www.twitch.tv/mbovosumo/videos All 8 videos in the top row are working for me.

    Just a quick update, the number of followers has indeed increased to over a 1000 (proud moment) and in case some of you haven't noticed I keep the VOD accessible so you can watch any of the past days if you missed it. Twitch automatically deletes the videos after 14 days but I guess if you haven't watched what you missed for 14 days you're not that interested :)

    Hello again, everyone! With ony a few days left until Haru Basho kicks off, I have some pretty good news. The iptv service I used for my stream in January has got much better, the annoying choppy, glitchy video is in the past. I will stream in 1080p 60fps but of course you can change the settings in the bottom right hand corner. I can't wait for Sunday morning (where I live), I hope to see you all ;)

    Another memorable Basho has just finished and I want to say thanks to the viewers, chatters, mods, and a huge thanks for the generous donations which helped me towards ordering a new, better and stronger Android box. I really hope it will mean significant improvement in the quality and stability of the stream. I also hope that the number of followers will hit 1000 in March, see you all then ;)

    I'm really not sure, I have done my best to find an English source and lost track of Japanese ones. There is another topic for live streaming options, I'm sure you'll find something there.

    Hey Everyone and Happy New Year! The long wait is almost over, in a few days it's Sumo time again. I have some news about my channel. Some of them bad, some of them pretty good. I'll start with the bad ones. From this upcoming Basho I'll only stream the last two hours of each day (if it's bad news at all, with the ever growing number of options around, it may not be), also there may be a bit of a step down in quality and stability. Nothing major though, it still is 720p with minor glitches in the stream... In my mind it's still a small price to pay for the good news, the long awaited English commentary and the fact that it'll be nearly live. I've been testing this service for weeks and all the programs start promptly on time (obviously my streaming software takes a few seconds to push the stream through to twitch). Of course, it's going to be a test and hopefully it will work well but in case it doesn't I'll make sure the usual Japanese stream is available as a backup. I can hardly wait, see you all on Sunday at 4PM JST.

    And I just want to say thanks to those who stick with my channel despite all the different options to watch Sumo. I think the reason is there's a great community in the chatroom with quite a few knowledgable members who are always happy to help the newcomers, answer their questions and share a lot of interesting info. A special thanks to those who support me, if you guys want your names to be mentioned here, let me know when making a donation or send me a pm here.

    Kyushu Basho Viewing Options

    If AU$49.95 three monthly is considered expensive, how about €50 per month for JSTV (terrible SD quality) in Europe? I envy you.

    Live Streaming - Kyushu 18

    According to Grand Sumo Preview on NHK World there will be live coverage on days 1 and 8 (5:10PM JST) and 15 (4:30PM JST).

    Kyushu Basho Viewing Options

    What do you mean by NHK "Channel 2"? As far as I know you can only watch Sumo with English commentary on NHK World Premium if you are in an area where you can receive signal from any of these satellites. For North American fans TV Japan is the solution which is only available on cable. Europe is in the worst situation, a bunch of thieves called JSTV charge over the top for a couple of crappy SD quality satellite channels on Hotbird which is easily accessible in Europe. Their IPTV doesn't have English audio (as I was told) and its quality isn't that great either. Answering your first question, I would recommend Smart DNS Proxy. They offer a 14 day trial, so if you use your imagination a little, it's basically a free solution.
