American Forces Network.

AFN-Japan, formerly the Far East Network (FEN), has one full-power VHF terrestrial TV outlet.

Located on Okinawa, is the halfway between Kyushu and Taiwan, atop the Rycom Plaza Housing area in the central part of the island, AFN-Okinawa's (U.S. channel 8) TV signal serves the military and their families stationed on the island.

TV viewers on military bases in the Tokyo and Kanto Plain area of Japan can view AFN via contractor-operated base cable TV services, or through AFN Direct-To-Home (DTH) dishes if they reside off-base.
