But I almost always don't watch TV programs.
I watch TV only Sunday morning for "Dragon Ball"which is broadcasting Sunday morning at 9:00 in Japan, and sometimes I watch some DVDs something like movies or animations.
I rent some DVDs from rental DVD store near my apartment about once a week, it cost 100yen a week.
I don't watch TV news, though I watch that always on PC or podcast, because it can watch when I wanna, I always watch CNN, ABC and NBC news on my iPhone.
But the announcer speaks very quickly for me so I can't understand only some parts.
