NHK plans to reduce its receiving fees by 10 percent for both its terrestrial and satellite broadcasting services starting in October 2023.
The 10 percent reduction will be the largest ever.
The reform plan also includes reviewing satellite channels.
Programs will be revised in December 2023. New BS4K and BS2K channels will be introduced, while one of the 2K satellite channels will be scrapped in March 2024.
NHK President Maeda Terunobu told a news conference that with prices rising on a global scale, NHK will step up its efforts to reduce its burden on viewers as much as possible.
NHK plans to solicit public opinions about the reform plan from Wednesday until November 10. It will take the views into account and modify its business plan by January.
