GEM is the glittering jewel of Asian general entertainment. A joint venture between Sony Pictures Television (SPT) Networks and Nippon Television Network Corporation, GEM enjoys access to more than 500 hours of Japanese content per year exclusively from Nippon TV.
The channel features first-run and exclusive dramas, comedies and variety entertainment shows from Japan as well as other Asian territories including China, Hong Kong and Korea. This includes selected prime time dramas on the same day and within the same week of their broadcast in Japan. GEM continues to delight its viewers with the live broadcast of Nippon TV's music festival 'THE MUSIC DAY Summer Wishes Come True' with performances by DEAN FUJIOKA in Singapore beamed live, and with the simulcast of the Japanese drama series 'Kiss that Kills' at the same time as Japan. In addition, GEM takes its shows beyond the screen and into the lives of viewers with artiste meet-and-greet events with Japanese stars Hayami Mocomichi and Kento Yamazaki.
