Niwango, the company behind Nico Nico Douga, the hugely popular video site that displays user comments on the videos themselves, keeps rolling on. On Nov. 28 the company launched a service called Nico Nico Jikyou (translated as Nico Nico Commentary) that allows viewers to comment and view other users’ comments on TV content in real time.

At the moment it only works when you are viewing digital broadcasts on a PC, but soon, if you happen to own a ROBRO-TV, a new broadband TV manufactured by Doshisha Co. Ltd., Orion Electric Co. Ltd. and Kadenza Co., Ltd., you’ll be able to view the peanut gallery’s opinions from your couch.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
