I will be posting all domestic NHK Makuuchi coverage for the September Aki Basho here. Each day is in two parts. After Juryo, they have all the ceremonial preamble, ring entry etc. The second part is the actual daily Makuuchi session starting at 4PM local JST time.
All Makuuichi videos will be posted to this folder for your streaming enjoyment:
I apologize as this is the main Japanese language feed. We simulcast live Japanese and English (the same feed used for NHK Premier globally or TV Japan in the US). I only have access to the archived Japanese language feed.
I will also update on this post when new video is up:
Tuesday 10. September: Day One Makuuchi from Sunday 8. September now up.
Thursday 12. September: Day Two Makuuchi from Monday 9. September is now up.

Day 4 action sees East Yokozuna Kakuryu deftly handle East Maegashira 2 Ichinojo (top). Meanwhile East Ozeki Tochinoshin beats East Komusubi Abi……or does he? The judges waste no time stripping him of a much needed win to preserve his Ozeki rank determining he committed an illegal top-knot pull down foul on Abi.
Hey sumo fans one and all. Wondering what to do between now and the September basho? How about catching up on the July Nagoya Juryo bouts! I have finally uploaded all the domestic NHK (Japanese only) broadcasts for your viewing pleasure! Please enjoy!
I uploaded Juryo Day 1 of the Nagoya Basho from domestic NHK. My access to programming expires after 14 days off my network cloud, so I had to offload this first. I will upload the rest of the Juryo tournament the next several days for your post-basho viewing enjoyment.
In September I will try and uploaded within 24 hours.
