Can I record NHK digital broadcasts?

Digital broadcasts can be recorded, but cannot be reproduced in large quantities or transmitted over the Internet.

Since April 2004, all NHK and commercial BS and terrestrial digital broadcast programs have been broadcast with a "copy control signal" added, which states that they can be recorded, but cannot be dubbed onto many media.

With hard disk recorders, etc., what is recorded on the hard disk can be viewed as many times as desired, and important programs can be saved on DVDs and other media.

For the convenience of viewers, the operational rules for private use of digital broadcasting were changed on July 4, 2008. Until now, the rule was "copy once" (recording is allowed but copying is not), but a new operation called "dubbing 10" has started.

In addition to DVDs, dubbing 10-compliant devices can handle a variety of recording media such as memory cards, and in order to prevent important programs from being erased due to failed moves, they can dub up to 10 times from a hard disk to removable media (Blu-ray discs, DVDs, etc.) within the recorder. The recorder can dub from the hard disk to removable media (Blu-ray discs, DVDs, etc.) up to 10 times. However, the tenth dubbing becomes a move (moving the storage location), and the first recorded broadcast program stored on the hard disk will be erased. (9 copies + 1 move)
