"ABEMA" is a video distribution business that aims to innovate television and develops it as a "new future television". No registration is required, and about 20 channels in a variety of genres are broadcast 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, including the only 24-hour news channel in Japan, as well as original dramas, romance programs, anime, and sports.
In addition, the number of original episodes boasts Japan's No. 1 (* 1) among domestic video services, and the total number of episodes is always over 80,000. In addition, we have a wide lineup of works such as hot new movies, popular domestic and international dramas, topical animations, and online live performances of various music and stage performances.

In addition, if you register for ABEMA Premium for 960 yen per month, you can enjoy "ABEMA" even more, such as being able to see limited content and use the "video download function" and "missing comment function".

For those of you saying you paid for the subscription and the app still won't work, you require a VPN as it's an app exclusive to Japan, so it won't work anywhere else. Stop giving the app bad reviews if you don't do your research first. It's a great app if you're trying to learn Japanese. You just need a VPN first before you can watch anything. Wish it did have subtitles though.

Mainly you can only watch it with a VPN that you can turn on and locate it to any Japanese city. However, if you get off of the app, it does have a mini player but tends to turn off when you go back to the app. After that you'll have to start over again... But overall, really good

The developer of this app has all of the content Geo-Blocked to Japan. If you live outside of Japan, the developer will take your money but give you nothing. Google Play will also not issue a refund. (You, the customer, should have already known that "premium" content was also Geo-Blocked.)
