NHK international TV programming affected by World Cup
Japanese broadcaster NHK is having to make changes to its international TV schedules during the World Cup in Germany. The station's website explains:

"We regret to inform you that NHK cannot broadcast images from the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany from Friday, June 9 to Monday, July 10 on NHK World TV nor NHK World Premium because NHK only has broadcasting rights for domestic services. The regular news programs of our international services will also be delayed from 30 minutes to 2 hours during this period due to the need to edit the live news programs by removing the 2006 FIFA World Cup footage shown for domestic audience in Japan."
