Japan's satellite digital multimedia broadcasting service, Mobile Broadcasting Corp., is carrying the Internet stream of WQXR(FM) in New York. Marketed in Japan as MobaHO!, the stream carries the classical music programming of WQXR as well as some commercials and customized programming elements.
WQXR, operated by The New York Times, will be one of two classical music channels in the MobaHO! lineup and the only station imported from outside Japan, the companies said.
Station GM Tom Bartunek said he hopes to expand that relationship.
MobaHO! has 37audio channels, including overseas FM radio stations and genre-specific music programming; eight video channels, including news, sports and entertainment programming; and a data service channel.
