TOKYO: The English-language channel NHK WORLD TV has secured a deal to offer its channel on Tata Sky, one of the largest pay DTH operators in India.

The new carriage sees 4 million Tata Sky subscribers access NHK WORLD TV, which provides Asia-centric programming. The channel is accessible globally to 290 million households in 150 territories. NHK WORLD TV operates from Japan but provides English-language offerings for international viewers.
